As we first hit the open dike I didn’t think much would be happening. It was foggy earlier in another marsh and this one is more prone to dense fog.
Things looked a little better when I could see down the dike and birds were in the trees.
Even better when we passed the tall grasses and looked left.
This was only part of the bowl (flock of Spoonbills is called a bowl).
The water was lower than usual allowing this group to wander around and feed.
Warmer weather has kept these larger groups in the marshes here. Breeding is maybe 4 hours south.
None of these birds is of breeding age, they are all young adults.
