Several seen roosting in live and dead trees at several locations within the Park.
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.
The family Threskiornithidae includes 34 species of large wading birds. The family has been traditionally classified into two subfamilies, the ibises and the spoonbills; however recent genetic studies are casting doubt on the arrangement, and revealing the spoonbills to be nested within the old world ibises, and the new world ibises as an early offshoot.
