Appreciating Deeply, Photos of Fauna Pink Birds, St. Augustine 08 May 2019 09 May 2019 Birds Having reviewed Florida’s white birds, I had a pink/blue decision to make. Pink it is. Today. And just one pink and black bird. Defenders and attacker.

I’ve seen a small flock in flight just once, and would love to see that again: all that pinkness moving through the air. Fabulous. Jim Robertson 12 May 2019 at 1:04 pm 7 months ago Beautiful images Isabel. The roseate spoonbills are much nicer than the white (with black beak) that we saw in Australia – even if the Aussie ones are names royal spoonbills. Isabel Gibson 12 May 2019 at 1:09 pm 7 months ago Jim R – Many thanks. The Aussies have the royal ibis too, don’t they? And those aren’t all that attractive . . . Laurna Tallman 12 May 2019 at 1:51 pm 7 months ago Such luscious colour and I don’t suppose they are eating carrots to please the tourists. Isabel Gibson 12 May 2019 at 1:58 pm 7 months ago Laurna – No, nor the crustaceans and other aquatic invertebrates that also contain the carotenoids that give them their pink coloration. And I don’t suppose carrots and crustaceans are super close on the great Tree of Life, either . . . 🙂 Laurna Tallman 13 May 2019 at 9:36 am 7 months ago The crustaceans etc. are part of the story I did not know. The world is so full of fascinating questions that I wonder why more people don’t pay closer attention. Thank you for the way you expand my horizons!
