I assume the Pelican were there first, that didn’t stop everyone else from grabbing a spot. There also were Egrets, Storks, and of Spoonbills.
Above a Spoonbill made a grand entrance, and a crash landing.
A second one came in (I missed noticing it at the time).
They found a spot in the middle and grabbed it.
The party crashing went on for a long time. A few left, but many more crashed into the center.
After I realized the flight path I moved back down the marsh to an opening. From there I could get flight shots coming and going.
This is what I describe as a ‘good morning’.
