This spot, between a tall dike (in the background) and the reeds, is becoming one of their go to places. Especially with lower water levels.
This is just about as deep as they can go to feed.
Water depth was the reason Roseate Spoonbills were almost extinct in the US. Changing the water flow throughout Florida increased the depth in their breeding grounds. Spoonbills are tropical birds that were only in southern Florida and the Keys.
Fortunately some young birds years ago stayed in the US and migrated inland through Florida. And now here in the Lowcountry.
