Check out this amazing flock of Roseate Spoonbills (along with Ibises, Great White Egrets, and Blue Herons) feeding at Mosquito Lagoon in Titusville, Fl. We were leaving the preserve after a bike ride and passed this commotion just at the right moment.
To see ONE is amazing. To see a whole flock of hot pink feathers gathered in one place is, in a word, SPECTACULAR.
Nature-Nerd Alert!!!! Saw this beautiful pink Roseate Spoonbill having dinner in a pond near my house and HAD to stop and capture it! They are so rare on South Florida’s east coast, especially outside of the Everglades.
I may have made a crazy u-turn and broken a few sprinkler heads to illegally park, but it was worth it!

A huge flock of mockingbirds were going absolutely BONKERS in my backyard this morning. As I made coffee and looked out my kitchen window I figured out why… There was a hawk perched on my bbq!!! It was probably threatening their nests.
Once I went outside for a better photo and inadvertently spooked it away, the commotion was over.
