2016—Goofy, With Wings

The goofy-looking roseate spoonbill has intrigued me ever since I first glimpsed one from afar in Port Aransas, TX years ago.  The spoonbills were well represented in the St. Augustine Alligator Farm Rookery. Their pink  feathers are gorgeous on such a large bird and in flight, if you don’t look too closely, they are quite magnificent.  That is until you look at that face.  I don’t know what it is about large pink birds but both spoonbills and flamingos are pretty funny looking birds. One day in St. Augustine, we watched a spoonbill, perched comfortably on one leg, preening in the morning sun.
