Roseate Spoonbill on Jamie Blvd on West Bank
This morning a Roseate Spoonbill was mixed in with a flock of 40 or so egrets that were foraging in a short (10 meter or so) stretch of the drainage canal along Jamie Blvd on the West Bank, in front of the new campus of Patrick F Taylor school. This is a minute or so south on Jamie Blvd from its intersection with Lapalco. This spot is apparently not part of any of the towns in that region, though close to both Avondale and Westwego.
The dense congregation of waders in itself was interesting- I wonder why the foraging was so good in that particular spot on the canal. There was also a smaller gathering there yesterday.
Nice to see pink amidst the white!
