Roseate Spoonbill, Platalea ajaja:
Black Point Wildlife Drive; Merritt Island NWR near Titusville, Florida
Roseate Spoonbill capture as it was landing along side the Black Point Wildlife Drive at Merritt Island NWR. A number of birds were feeding at this locations which attracted a few more spoonbills. I saw this fellow flying in from the west and panned my camera and shot a burst of frames. This is just one of the many that I liked. I do love Merritt Island.
