Spoonbills

Another bird that is showing some breeding plumage is the Roseate Spoonbill.  Here are some photos I took last week of a group (including a stray Ibis) that worked its way past me, wading through the shallow water,  feeding on the schools of small fish, and showing off the bright red wing colors.

The black mottled band around the head is also part of the breeding plumage change.
