Spoonbills Took Over

Spoonbills Took Over

This started out is a flock of Wood Storks. After a bit Roseate Spoonbills joined.

It didn’t take long for the Spoonbills to out number Storks.

After watching the Storks moving up and down the edge here I knew both groups would do the same path. I stayed and let them parade into my viewfinder.

After only seeing them one or two at a time this summer it was good to know they were still out in the far marsh.

I need to visit again soon, this marshland is closed every winter by the state. It is a major migratory route so all roads and trails through here are blocked by iron gates.

Note; there are some animals that are very conscious of the sound my cameras shutter makes (Canon 7D2) when shooting high speed. In images above you can see several glancing over at me. If I see it bothering them I will change to ‘S, silent’ but lose about 6 shots a second. My backup camera (Canon 70D) is even louder, and much slower.
