Went for a short drive today to a local wetland sanctuary and found this spectacular -looking fellow.
He’s a Yellow-billed spoonbill (for obvious reasons!) and had built himself quite an impressively sized nest about 5 ft (1.5m) in diameter and around 18 inches (0.5m) tall. I’m not sure if he built it to attract a mate or he was guarding it for the moment, but i did not spy his good lady while i was there.
With a White-faced Heron in the background (more of him in a later post!) 🙂
