We found a whole flock of wood storks feeding. If you have sharp eyes, you might spot the four roseate spoonbills crashing the party.
Aren’t spoonbills gorgeous? Their legs are red and their bodies pink because they eat shrimp. Shrimp eat algae, algae make their own red and yellow pigments, spoonbills eat shrimp, and voila! pink birds.
Ships’ cats throughout history have had a job to do — taking care of any vermin that come aboard. While we enjoyed our ice cream (caramel pecan sea salt, if you must know) I think this guy was getting shipshape for the night watch. One hopes that is not his unfortunate predecessor behind him!
