Default Roseate Spoonbill

This lone Spoonbill was in Loxahatchee with the other wading birds on Friday. They look a bit odd, the spoon bill is used to filter feed. Colors can vary from pale to bright, I have heard this is an effect of diet.

Another fine sample of your great birding skills Ed!
I'm starting to wonder if my lens is too short or if I'm just in the wrong nature park!

Some great photos of an impressive bird. Love the pink reflections! Great action series, and great composition too.

Are you doing something different in PP lately? Something looks different around the edges...

Nice shots! You have shown us a nice variety of wading bird life recently. You are fortunate to have such an abundance of species wintering there.
