Roseate Spoonbill at the Causeway storm water retention pond
This morning at 8 am and again just now at 1:30 PM, a Roseate Spoonbill was in the water retention pond underneath Causeway near its intersection with Airline Hwy in Metairie. This is the same place I reported Semipalmated Sandpiper and Plover from a few weeks back.
From Airline Hwy westbound, turn left at the first light beyond the Causeway overpass (=Shrewsbury). Take the dirt track that forks off and passes under the Earhardt Expressway; the bird is in the near end of the pool, in the company of five Black-necked Stilts (a new high count for the site).
