Pink Birds, St. Augustine

Having reviewed Florida’s white birds, I had a pink/blue decision to make.

Pink it is.

  1. Gorgeous, silly, fun creatures with their platypus beaks

      Barbara – Yeah, they’re odd-looking, all right. 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.

  2. Jim Robertson says:

    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 says:

      Jim R – Many thanks. The Aussies have the royal ibis too, don’t they? And those aren’t all that attractive . . .

  3. Such luscious colour and I don’t suppose they are eating carrots to please the tourists.

  4. 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!

      Laurna – Well, it’s true – the world *is* full of wonders. Thanks for letting me know you enjoy my small input.
