Oops!  Some white Pelicans snuck in!

We drove to Sanibel Island in Ft. Myers today, to drive through the J.N."Ding" Darling Preserve. Ding Darling was a preservationist and conservationist who was instrumental in formulating many of the conservation laws of today. He was a very interesting man; there are books about him and his work with Teddy Roosevelt in conservation.

There were a nice assortment of birds there, but todays' lesson is all about........SPOONBILLS!
(Can you tell I think they're the most beautiful bird in the world)?

I thought our white spoonbills were good, but those are magnificent.

These are the Roseate Spoonbills. I did not know there were white ones; my bird book is for N.America only. Do you have any pics of the white ones?

How lovely! That is a really unique bird. Thanx!

My Una says she likes the pink colour of those tweets.

They are the most fabulous color; I think that shade of pink would suit you very well, Dame.

Magnificent plummage!! :)

I think they are the most beautiful birds I've ever seen. The deep pink means they are breeding adults; younger ones are paler.
