Roseate Spoonbill at the Dan Click Ponds.

The migratory sason is winding down at the Viera Wetlands.  Coots and Moorhens have reclaimed their positions as the inhabitors of the wetlands, while other ducks like the ring-necks continue to linger.  Perhaps the highlight of this part of the season is the influx of shorebirds.  Black-Necked Stilts, Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs, and Roseate Spoonbills are now frequently seen.  Although I am suspicious they are still there I did not see my pair of Wigeons.  The Sandhill Cranes are busy with their new colts, the Great Blue Herons and Anhingas are busy with their babies.  It’s funny, but we think of Spring as the time of Love in the Air, but it’s really Winter.  A lot could be said with that last statement, but I’m stopping here, and bringing you the photos!

 

Thanks for Looking!
