Roseate Spoonbill

 As we drove down highway 35 business between Rockport and Aransas Pass we were treated to the sight of a small flock of Roseate Spoonbills wading in the drainage ditch alongside the road.


We have never seen on before.  The Roseate Spoonbill is the only spoonbill found in North America.  Looking like a genetic mistake, they stand about 30 to 40 inches tall and a wing span of 50 to 53 inches.

    Hola. Met you folks last winter at Rons RV Park. Just checking in on your blog to see where you are this winter. We are back at Ron’s as a home base but are hoping to travel via car to the east side and check out possibilities for next winter. Hope we run into you again one day.
