These band resightings on roseate spoonbills are just so fascinating! I know Andy and I had two banded birds, one from the Florida Bay rookeries and another from the Tampa Bay rookeries, up here at St. Marks together a few years ago. These kids get around!

Just a reminder for folks that if you find banded spoonbills,  you can report online here:

> I heard from Brennan Mulrooney of Florida Audubon that the banded
