A little more specific on the Roseate Spoonbill. seen this AM at the Little / BIg Sinkhole near Inman, KS. I walked the dike from 10th Ave (Rd) walking to the west. The dike path takes off just a bit sound on 10th Ave from the curve around the big sinkhole. A waterway separates the dike from the pool where the egrets and the spoonbill were feeding. My look was of a large pink bird flying away. I'm not sure what put them to flight as I could not see them.
Additional birds included a Peregrine Falcon diving at shorebirds and once even a duck along with a number of shorebirds (had to ID as it was very dark from an approaching storm). Two Northern Harriers were working the fields around the sinkholes. I had never walked back into this area before. Even if the spoonbill ends up not being present one would have a great birding experience at this location. I would have birded longer but a cold front in the form of a thunderstorm moved in.
