Default Spoonbill Landing Sequence

I observed this dead tree as from one to six Roseate Spoonbills landed. One Black-bellied Whistling duck joined them for diversification. These look like younger birds, adults have more of the darker red color on the outside of their wings.

Beautiful shots. The markings on the wings are wonderfully shown. I also like the bills in all the pictures, but especially the last one.

Indeed excellent series - every feather is clear, all the action is captured so carefully!
