I'd like to see those around here. I thought I'd also see spoonbills but only one time.
They are trying to help the whooping crane get established again here in Louisiana but it is not going as good as they thought it would.

Thank you Peggy.
Actually, there are a bunch that stay year round in South Florida.
Maybe not right where you are though.

Thank you Maxine.
I was so thrilled to hear their honking calls in the distance. I just had to take a ride out to the cow fields. brrrr
I hope the rest make it here without any incidence.
