The dates for Spoonbill tours are January 30-31, February 27-28 and June 5-6. The recent May 30-31 tour was a great success with very high bird activity and many newly fledged youngs in the open. This is the only time and place where you might get to photograph them at that stage of their life. Send me an email at email@example.com to book your spot!
Young Spoonbills have a full set of feathers on their head! Their colors are paler, with black accents on some of their wing tips. Sometimes, their lore (around the eyes) is of a blue tint. The image above was created while shooting from the boat. I am really happy the clouds definition, which gives a strong sense of perspective.
There were many young birds in the open in the last May 30-31 tour. One of my favorite part was how playful they were. If not playing while feeding, they were playing while in flight, delivering some impressive stunts. That was quite the treat for action shots! The image above displays two youngs goofing together in flight.
Did I mention the very high bird activity? Early in the morning, we had a great number of birds flying in and out. As a result, pre-sunrise blurs were spectacular! See two adult Spoonbills in the image above, flying in tandem.
