Three Point Landing

The twig must have looked a lot larger as the spoonbill was coming in for a landing.  Getting closer it must have realized the perch wasn’t going to work and made a last second adjustment to miss the twig.  Unfortunately within a second the twig was pushed down with one leg and then released.  It snapped back giving the spoonbill a quick pop on the belly.  Not all landings go as planned.

Every Little Bit Helps

I don’t suppose it’s easy getting out there every day during nest building season and finding the best branches.  This Great White Egret may not have brought home the bacon but every little bit helps.
