We’re on Dewees for the weekend, frolicking in the late spring / earely summer weather. So are the critters. The rosette spoonbill is back. She looks gloriously pink on Mother’s Day. We’ve seen her several times near the corner of Old House Lane and Dewees Inlet Drive where the shorebirds hang out.
The snakes are out. We’ve seen baby water moccasins and large black racers. The first is poisonous, the second isn’t.
We’ve seen two black-necked stilts in the impoundment. They look both beautiful and funny when they fly with their legs held straight behind them. They must have amazing abs to hold them that way.
