Roseate Spoonbill

Click to enlarge
This a rare sighting in Central Florida....The Spoonbill usually nest in the Keys and travel in pairs.  We were told the mate of this one was seen earlier this morning.
Also that there are only a thousand pairs that exist in Florida...other nesting areas include coastal Texas and Louisiana.  It did not lose a wing.  Their wings are pink........






Maureen saw this and turned around....

Spoonbills are a curiosity!

I have yet to see my first Spoonbill this year, but we usually see lots of them around the Fort Desoto area, including some that live on a local golf course.

Did you see any live ones on your path?

We have seen several, but not any near that sign.
