Smith Oaks Spoonbills (HAS Smith Oaks, High Island, Texas): 31 March 2010

The highlight from today was the rookery at Smith Oaks. Great Egrets were sprouting plumes, while their facial skin had turned electric, lime green. Meanwhile glowing pink Roseate Spoonbills picked up sticks, dropped them again, and tussled with each other for prime position in the rookery (photos).
