Roseate Spoonbill

Well, if you thought the Northern Shoveler from the other day had an impressive bill, then today’s post should be pretty outstanding. When I was in Florida, I made multiple visits to Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge as it was advertised as a location where Roseate Spoonbills can be seen in large numbers. After driving through the refuge multiple times and barely seeing any birds at all, I was pleasantly surprised when I made a visit to a tiny little sanctuary called Peaceful Waters on a recommendation from my friend Laura. As I got there, a gentleman mentioned to me that he had seen some spoonbills in the drainage ditch at the far end of the sanctuary.
