Valentine Bloggerversary

Happy Valentine's Day. This is also our blogger anniversary. We have been doing Stokes Birding Blog for 1 year, during which time we have brought you 233 posts, hundreds of Lillian’s photos and had you travel with us to many places across the country. We hope you have enjoyed this year of Stokes Birding Blog and we plan on bringing you another great year of blogging.

The above photo was recently taken of a Roseate Spoonbill preening with its head under its wing. I took a similar photo a year ago and put it on our first blog entry. Click here to see it. You can also view all our past year's blog entries by clicking on the archives in the column to the right.

See you for another year,

Lillian and Don Stokes

Thank you for the lovely image for Valentine's Day! 5-year-old birdwatcher Fiona would like to know if spoonbills' color depends on their diet, like a flamingo's color does?

Your blogs are bright spots day in and day out. Thank you and keep it up!

Thank you all for the warm wishes, we appreciate it. Tell young birdwatcher Fiona, that Roseate Spoonbills do not depend on their diet for the color. They mostly eat small fish. Young Roseates, as in my photo, are pale pink. Adult Roseates are darker pink with a deep red bar across their wing. Keep watching the birds!
