Birds on the Mudflats in Ding Darling Wildlife Reserve

Here are some pictures as promised.
The most colorful birds in DDWR are the Roseate Spoonbills but they have such ugly faces with their beaks shaped like spoons. These pictures show them resting with their heads tucked under their wings. They are most beautiful in flight when you can see the beautiful colors in their wing feathers.  Hope we will shoot a better picture to show them in full color.

Thanks for stopping by.
