Wild Bird Wednesday – 136 – Spoonbills

Still more photos from our visit to the South Padre Island Birding & Nature Center.  We were pretty psyched to see these beauties!  At first there were just four.

Then in the distance there came a much larger group following this one.

Even though it has been almost 3 months, it is still pretty exciting to think of all the wonderful birds we saw in this very small birding center.  Can hardly wait for the next adventure!  Till then I invite you to join all the great birders over at Stewart’s.

  1. I believe I read somewhere that the intensity of their coloring is related to their diet. We saw a flock in the wild in Southwest Florida that has captured my imagination ever since!
