We went for a walk around Western Springs, yesterday. The tree that used to be full of shags had been claimed by a flock of Royal Spoonbills, some resting in the shrubbery, some apparently gathering twigs. The last (and only) time that I saw spoonbills at Western Springs was 11 years ago.

These birds can look so comical!

More spoonbills here.
