Pretty in Pink‏

Spoonbill at Lemon Lake

Water levels are dropping in Lemon Lake (Amberjack Preserve at the end of Gasparilla Pines Blvd) and the spoonbills are back.  Shallower waters concentrate prey and make wading possible for these spectacular filter feeders.  Two boardwalks allow for easy viewing when the birds are nearby so take this chance to enjoy these and other beautiful water birds such as green winged teal which are unusually common this year.
