Observed in nature in the tidal pools of this area. Early morning apprx 6am
Poor pictures, the birds were at the other end of a large pond.
A juvenile, judging by the light pink feathers on its wings. It was wildly sweeping its bill side to side as it skimmed the water surface of a small pond. It went side to side by the edge of the pond, as if no other birds were near it. Next to it there's a juvenile Great Blue Heron and a Snowy Egret.

Large, pink bird flying above Galveston Island State Park interpretive trail.
the Roseate Spoonbills flew in and went in the small pond well hidden behind tall grasses, fortunately the tower gave some view of them once they landed and they are big enough to be seen by my camera while many other species aren't.
these were on the other side of marsh grasses and only visible from the viewing tower

Note the date! An old set of photos I forgot to process until now. This vagrant spent several months here.
