It's the most wonderful time of the year! No, I'm not talking about Christmas (yet). It's bird migration season! We photographers who flock toward feathery creatures for photo opps are loving it. Already, I've spotted some migratory birds including lots of beautiful roseate spoonbills. I love these guys! How could you not...with the splash of pink on their feathers…their bloodshot eyes…those rounded beaks…and those long, skinny red legs?! All in all, the spoonbills are a nice colorful addition to the area right now. I spotted several flocks at Myakka State Park over the weekend. According to my 'Birds of Florida' field guide, roseate spoonbills live year round throughout coastal Florida. But, from what I've seen over the years, they definitely migrate to Sarasota when the temperature starts to drop in the northern part of the state. We're expecting lows in the 40s by mid-week. Bundle up, birdies!
