Dining for Two - Wild Bird Wednesday


Everglades, Florida

Several commented on the Roseate Spoonbill alongside the Wood Stork using his wing as a sunshade in last week's Wild Bird Post.  Here are more of the dining couple.



And this one would rather dine alone.

Who me?

Whatever...

For more birds go to Stewart's Wild Bird Wednesday

That red is very red the one bird has. Amazing how nature can give them such colours.

I've never seen the spoonbill in a picture before. It is really a lovely colored bird.

The roseate spoonbill is such an interesting bird that I can sit there and observe it for hours. Thank you for sharing these beautiful photos.

Both are so lovely! I particularly like the picture of the single spoonbill looking a little "startled." Great shots!

I'm not much of a birder but that roseate spoonbill looks pretty special.

Great find, John.
