This year we were lucky with the Spoonbills favorite spots. This was one and almost too convenient. The only entrance to a large Wildlife Management Area.
Getting to the marshes requires going down a dirt road, on a dike, separating 2 waterways. They picked a spot here that even had room to pull a car over.
It’s not like they were there all the time, but at some point this entire group would come in and dig around for awhile.
And ignore us since we always give them their space.
If the feeding was good they would approach fairly close to us as they had become comfortable with the other 2 legged critters.
