These are by far my favorite of Florida's wading birds. Every time I see them I get carried away photographing them.

Beautiful shots. A few days ago I saw a stray one up here in Moncks Corner which is a bit unusual.

Usually a Marshy area is the best place to see them. Or an open prairie grassland with water in it. I do know from Southern Ga down there is a chance to see them.

Thanks. The color is why the roseate spoonbill is my favorite wading bird.
