Nice flights Bob. Is the water higher or lower than normal?

. Most places I go it's lower. The del Ray wetlands are way higher than normal

Is that what it is?

You're sure right....I never see them any more. And we're about 4 inches light in the rain department. The lakes and ponds are all visibly low.


Remember what the DorMouse said.....feed your head.

Sometimes there are days when you get the shot(s) you missed many days, months or years before.

thanks Ian- they are very photogenic. unfortunately I here that water levels in everglades national park are causing a nesting crisis. sea level is up 5 inches, salt intrusion is increasing, fresh water is way lower than normal etc., etc. oh well I'm glad to find a few up by me so I'll keep at it

they move around a lot looking for ideal conditions- last year we had extra winter rain and which brought them closer to the roads where I drive.

Nice shooting, Bob. The Spoonies are "more widely dispersed " around here according the the local experts. Water levels are good, so, maybe food issue? Seen some but not the usual numbers.

down here they say they did not have a good nesting year. water is key to them though - not too high, not too low. and falling is best
