Dear All,
I am sorry, I could not find the proper place here to post this question and hence am posting it here.

Thanking you.

What part of Florida? Just an FYI Spoonbills can be seen in so many places, but tides really affect where they will be in a given day.

Fort De Soto is my favorite park in the state to photograph in.

Hi guys

I was wondering if you could give me some tips.. I am on the same quest here. I am at Clearwater and just 3 more days until I leave.

I saw one yesterday at Weedon Island late in the afternoon. I did not have my camera ready!!!!

I spent a day at Fort de Soto and I have been to several parks near Clearwater.

Any tips would be great. I am might consider driving all the way to Ding Darling, but this would be my last option, since it is a good 3 hours drive from Clearwater.

Many thanks!!
Marcos

I was at Ding Darling a little over a month ago and I didn't see any spoonbills. Didn't see many other birds either that were at all close to shore.

Circle B Bar Ranch in Lakeland.

Last time I was there the place was lousy with them. Plus many, many other birds, pigs, gators and snakes. It's a huge place......nearly 1300 acres......hope you have some good hiking shoes. ;-)a

Thank you Saea501! I am heading to Circle B tomorrow morning. Funny thing is that was on a small list of places I had included to visit, but didn’t make it (yet).

Saea501 - I cannot thank you enough for the great tip. Circle B now has a special place in my heart! :)

I got there at 08:30am on Tuesday and left at 4pm. I got to see some spoonbills, osprey, gators... and everything in between! I did not have a chance to process the images yet, but I will post something this week.

It was my last full day in Florida. What a grand finale! :)
