Location of ibis and spoonbills
9 roseate spoonbills roosting in short dead tree along with 2 white ibis.
Three Roseate Spoonbills were foraging and resting with other waders at the remnants of this pond along the frontage road of TX 71 just W of La Grange. In this photo, from L to R, are an adult white morph Reddish Egret, 3 Roseate Spoonbills, and a Great Egret.
