Subject: No Roseatte Spoonbill Sept 2nd
Went out to the 9th and Arrowhead wetlands area southeast of Inman and then
over to the larger pool on 10th and was unable to locate the spoonbill but
wow, there were plenty of other birds: ibis, little blue heron, egrets,
blue herons, killdeer along with assorted bullfrogs, carp and other
critters. This was about 4:30 pm on Saturday. Met another couple there who
had driven out from Kansas City and looking too.

Have never been out to those wetlands before. Very cool oases of wildlife.
Makes me long to see what that full wetlands looked like a century ago
before agriculture gobbled it up. It guess it rivaled Cheyenne Bottoms and

I was also wondering with the start of dove season if the spoonbill may lay
low or scatter. Has anyone else spotted it?
