My first spoony babies!


"Listen Mom, I have to tell you something."


"I can't get comfortable."


"Who's your favorite, Mom?"


"Look at my pink wings!"


"Three's a crowd."


"Don't poop on us Mom."

I stopped by Lowry Park zoo for a quick visit to check on the spoonbill nest. What a nice surprise to find 3 babies on the nest. They were so cute! I spent about an hour taking pictures. If I had my camera pointed at the nest, people would stop and notice the nest above the alligator pond. If I wasn't taking pictures, most walked by without even noticing the nest. People where noticing the big alligators laying below. They were mesmerized by how big the alligators were. The babies were my first spoonbill babies. They were light pink and fuzzy. I hope they don't outgrow that nest too fast. I'm going to try and stop by each weekend to keep track of their progress.

  7. Great photos and the coloring on the birds is so beautiful. Spoonbills around where I live in SE Queensland, Australia are just plain white with black bills - not nearly so beautiful!

  9. Dina you've done it again! These pictures are awesome. It's hard to imagine a bird being more beautiful. What a rare and wondrous sight. I do hope you'll be back to the nest and treat us to some more. Be careful around those gators they might be using those spoonbills as bait!

  12. Oh, I love them! (I've been anxiously awaiting this, only to discover I've fallen behind on my commenting due an appointment with a doctor. Duh.)
    Well, here they are, and here I am, and they're too too precious. Your captions are wonderful, Dina.
