At High Island Texas, which isn't an island, there is a rookery where roseate spoonbills and great egrets nest.

There is a viewing area that is close to the nests and you can get good looks and photos.

High Island is the surface expression of a salt dome at the edge of the Gulf of Mexico.

Platalea ajaja

A bizarre wading bird of the southern coasts, the Roseate Spoonbill uses its odd bill to strain small food items out of the water. Its bright pink coloring leads many Florida tourists to think they have seen a flamingo.
