Observed (3) spoonies along the Texas City Levee.
Our one and only good look at a Roseate Spoonbill, although we had seen them in flight a couple of times elsewhere. They had finished breeding and were pretty well dispersed, so we were happy to finally find one.
I believe those are mangrove 'knees' behind the bird.
The Roseate Spoonbill (Platalea ajaja) (sometimes placed in its own genus Ajaja) is a gregarious wading bird of the ibis and spoonbill family, Threskiornithidae. It is a resident breeder in South America mostly east of the Andes, and in coastal regions of the Caribbean, Central America, Mexico, and the Gulf Coast of the United States.
