Spoonbills In A Dry Marsh Canal

Spoonbills In A Dry Marsh Canal

This group of Roseate Spoonbills had walked the length of this section of canal. It was funny watching them because it was like they were having a meeting to regroup.

With a flock this large, and other birds nearby, a canal like this can be stripped of all it’s fish in a short time. These birds are like an eating machine.

When the water comes back, in almost no time it is just as if nothing had ever happened.

The best part of a temporary dry canal /marsh is the vegetation on the bottom is now in open sunlight. The plants die back and don’t choke the waterways.
