Glad you saw a "rosie" but surprised there were not many around. Generally there are dozens in Ding Darling. And when the water level in the lagoon at Blind Pass Condominiums---located near the preserve---- is low, roseate spoonbill and many other birds can be sighted feeding there. They are something to see!
