Roseate Spoonbill on Bird Island yesterday.
Must look good for breeding season.
Great Blue Heron.
Big feet on that bird.
We borrowed a boat from our boat club in Manatee Pocket yesterday and took a ride up the Indian River Lagoon to the rookery just off Sewall’s Point known as Bird Island.
It is Wood Stork nesting season. They appear to still be building nests. I have not seen chicks yet.
The Snowy Egrets are in breeding plumage and acting flirty.
I have never seen them like this.
Always surprising the variety of breeds sharing space on this island.
My sister and brother-in-law were in town and we all watched birds from the boat.
Incoming Wood Stork.
A rather skull-like head.
Wood Stork with wings up.
Roseate Spoonbill again.
Lots of Brown Pelicans on the island now too.
