I Got My Spoonbill!

I had mentioned in my beginning Florida birds’ post series that there were two birds I wished the most to see and photograph while vacationing here.  One was the Sandhill Crane, which I fortunately lucked out with a memorable photo op session that I shared a few posts back.

The other was the Roseate Spoonbill.

Today, guess what I spotted off in a distant wetland?  You got it.  A lone Roseate Spoonbill!

The Roseate Spoonbill was so gorgeous with it’s different shades of vibrant pinks.  As I ran a series of shots, someone walked up to me, saw the Spoonbill, and got just as excited as I did!   🙂

I wish he had been closer, but I can’t complain, I got my wish.  I got my Spoonbill!

  1. Great that you got your Spoonbill! They are very beautiful, and also very calm birds. When they notice you, they get interested and it almost feels like they pose for a picture 🙂

  2. What beautiful captures Donna!! How exciting for you, I would have shared the same excitement, as I see this bird posted by Tiny often and would love to see it also.Those vibrant pinks! It is such a satisfied feeling when you see a bird you have purposely sought to find, we had similar experiences in Tassie.
