We drove past the mystery and went to the doctors where they apologized for the goof in scheduling and informed us that we have to come back on Monday as the doctor wasn't in the office.
We headed right back to the pond to do some investigating!
We thought at first they were flamingos! But they are not.Roseate Spoonbills and like the flamingos get their pink coloring from eating the crustaceans that eat the algae that gives them their beautiful coloring! A flock of spoonbills is called a bowl of spoonbills! There is your fun-fact for the day!
They were tall birds but not as tall as the Sandhill Cranes we have in the yard.Woodstork and another first bird sighting for us.
American Black Ducks . We didn't have anything to offer them in the way of crackers, etc, and they did expect it as the ducks came right toward us for feed! What a nice wilderness expedition right in the middle of these buildings!
SouthBeachGrill and had a lovely early supper! What a gift of a day!
