Despite long hours of observation today, the spoonbill was only reported by
two observers in flight at 5:44am while coming from roost, and at 10am from
a location on the York bank of the Susquehanna, looking at the river side
of the flats from a good distance. At least one birder covered the flats
for 4 hours by kayak, and coverage from shore at either the Blue Rock Rd
boat launch or Washington Boro Park was constant all day. It was seen 5-6
times in flight from shore throughout the day yesterday, but only the one
time today before 6am. Numerous non-birders in kayaks were told to report
back if a large, pink bird was seen. I personally believe the bird is no
longer present at this location, but I would love to be proven wrong!
