Where have all the Spoonbills gone?

Spoonbill Convention from Jane Patterson on Vimeo.

This collection of Roseate Spoonbills was seen hanging out near the small rookery near Jefferson Island, Louisiana. They didn't seem to be interested in pairing off for breeding, which was odd. Mostly they seemed to be pestered by flying insects (buffalo gnats?). There were a few spoonbill nests stirred in with the other wading birds, but not many at this location.
