The Spoonbills of Lake Saint George
This small lake on the west coast of Florida lies within a state preserve and a wide variety of waterfowl visit the lake all year round. Years ago the Roseatte Spoonbills almost became extinct as they were hunted for their fine plumage. Their feathers were used in ladies hats during the mid to late 1800’s. At one point there were only a few dozen mating pair surviving in the United States. Special protected areas were set aside for them and in the 1940s they were made a protected species. Over time the population recovered and today the roseate spoonbill is no longer a protected species. These are highly social birds and like to flock and live in colonies. What grand birds to watch!
