One early morning before dawn I ventured to a spot  just over the Nassau Sound to photograph what is known locally as “Spoonbill Pond”, which gets its name from Roseate Spoonbills that will gather there, along with many other bird species. It was perfectly quiet as I photographed this group of Wood Storks against a sky that was just starting to see the new light of day. Minutes afterward, as the sun finally crested the horizon, the serene scene became hectic and alive with the cacophony of many birds rising the alarm of food near by.
