Interesting. I spotted a roseate spoonbill flying over Skip Bertman drive on the LSU Baton Rouge campus near the softball stadium....

Roselie et al,

Down here in Metairie, I see Roseate Spoonbills in the West Metairie Boulevard canal with some frequency, but I've only seen any from my yard a very few times. However, I did tally 2 this morning on my usual AM sky watch, which I will eBird [can eBird be made into a verb?].

Still have 3 or 4 Ruby-throated Hummingbirds with thousands of flowers to provide nectar.
