totally makes my day seeing these birds. the little blue heron is GORGEOUS! and the roseate spoonbill...the color through the wings. *sigh* my day is complete.

(by the way, i have no idea how i found your blog but i've been subscribed for a couple months and enjoy it so much! i'm a 29-year-old birder in a state where nobody else my age (read: my average friend group) enjoys a binocular hunt. So fun to find your pictures!)
