Royal Spoonbill, Lawrence, NE NSW, 10.1.09d

One morning we went to a nearby egret rookery in Lawrence. It was amazing, thousands of egrets and spoonbills of nearly every kind. Royal Spoonbills, plus Little Egrets, Cattle Egrets, Intermediate Egrets, Eastern Great Egrets, and various other water birds (including Pink-eared Duck) all nesting in dead trees. Amazing sight.

 

Here is a little altercation between two Royal Spoonbills.
