Roseate Spoonbill

One of my favorite birds in Sarasota is the roseate spoonbill.    Maybe it's the goofy looking beak, the white-pink feathers, or those bright red eyes...but I think they're really cool.  I don't see them as often as I'd like, so when I do it's a treat.  I spotted this guy hanging out with some other spoonbills at the celery fields.

He looks a little annoyed with you for taking his picture! What a great shot.

Super shot! It must be really thrilling to spot one of these.

Cool shot. I am in Fort Myers at the moment and dopn't think I have seen these down here yet.
