Life of a spoony

Dirty beak.

Really digging hard for food.

What do you want!

Time for a nap.
I came across this roseate spoonbill this weekend and stopped and took a few pictures. I pulled off the side of the road and got out of my car with my camera. He just kept foraging and looking for food. He was making his way towards me but I don't think he noticed me at first. These birds are not very skittish birds. Finally after about 10 minutes he stopped and looked up at me like "What do you want?". Then he continued looking for food. A few minutes later he stopped and tucked his head in for a nap. I decided I needed one of those as well so I packed up and left.
