Roseate Spoonbills and Wood Storks have the complete opposite temperament. You have big pink clowns, and serious looking ‘old man’ tall guys.
I find it funny both species tend to flock together, at least for a while.
Spoonbills aways gather, and look to climb, any log or branch in a marsh. They will push and snap at each other almost like a game. All these Spoonbill were juveniles making it even louder.
Sooner or later one of the calm Wood Storks will lose it…enough with the chaos.
Below a Stork snapped at, then ran off, the clowns.
Calm was soon restored, the Storks enjoying their quiet time again. The clowns will soon be back, the routine repeats itself.
