Shades of Pink

Roseate Spoonbill
A bit messy...slopping seagrass on that spoonbill, but nevertheless, those shades of pink are very pretty!  Spotted this roseate spoonbill Monday evening on Sarasota Bay -- a fun and unusual sighting in the summertime.  Typically, the roseate spoonbills have migrated north by this time of year.  Whatever the season, it's always a thrill to see one!

An unusual bird to my eyes, but then we don't have them here.

Your photo makes me want to know more about this bird, esp information about its bill.

Well done, SRQ. I saw a couple of spoonbills last winter in Naples. They aren't very common down there.

I would absolutely loved to see one SRQ. We do see spoonbills but minus the pink colouring!
