We've been busy, but I finally managed to post a blog finishing up our six months in St. Augustine, FL - full of pink roseate spoonbills!

    What a wonderful blog and what wonderful photographs!! Of course I just love roseate spoonbills and just wish they would make their way to PEI . . . you've really captured their attitude!! On land, that sieving action of the "spoon bill" is so fun to watch but when they fly they look like dawn incarnate!!

    Amazing photos of the bittern too -- they are notoriously difficult to find and photograph (as are green herons) and yet you've got terrific pictures of both of them. I'm sure that bittern thought he was invisible -- but he wasn't!!

    Always love those big goofy wood storks too -- and of course GBHs, always fun to watch (and we do get them here for sure!!)

    Your pictures are wonderful, and I'm sure you will miss the birds of the SE. Are there specific birds you look forward to seeing when you get back to Washington state? I don't know about the Covid situation you will pass through on your way back north, but I know you are sensible about being careful.

    Safe trip,

    Wow, your birds are so beautiful? So it's eating shrimp that gives them their pink color?
    They definitely don't mind being photographed. "Strutting around like a model" I thought of that scene in Sunset Blvd - "I'm ready for my close-up..."

    So the less blue herons are older? Hmm, grayer just like people.

    Looking forward to your adventures up north. I know you will find something interesting to do.
