They are starting to migrate back to our Wetlands! Lucky us! Love love their pink feathers. Added to the workshop is another glimpse of this beauty wading

A bizarre wading bird of the southern coasts, the Roseate Spoonbill uses its odd bill to strain small food items out of the water. Its bright pink coloring leads many Florida tourists to think they have seen a flamingo.

Hello Brenda,
A bit tiny in the frame, but a splendid photo in amazing beautiful colours and awesome sharpness and details. Attractive pose. I've seen them two weeks ago in the Pantanal, but only from a large distance.

Hello Brenda,
You have photographed this beautiful Roseate Spoonbill in an attractive close-up shot. I love their bright pink plumage and uniquely shaped bill.
You are very fortunate to live in an area where these and many other colorful birds spend their winter months. Perhaps someday I will get the chance to view one of these gorgeous birds in the wild myself. Until them I will just keep enjoying your posts.
