Searching The Mud, Spoonbills

These are opportunities I can get when things go well. Notice I said opportunities, because it’s still easy to end up with very little. There’s no real time to keep checking your settings. Besides dancing around out there will cause them to move real quick.

Roseate Spoonbill will use their unique bill to stir and sift the bottom for small prey. They walk on focused on the hunt, and not too much else. That works out well if you have the right spot.

Wildlife areas in the ACE Basin are filled with thousands of old rice fields and marshes. Spring and fall they can be filled with flocks of wading birds fishing each marsh, all in a line, until they have exhausted the food supply.

They move on, the marshes are refreshed by time and tides. Some birds stop by, it starts all over again.
