Great Catch of these SPOOKY WADDERS .
I find them to be exceptionally interesting. have seen them hunting crabs in the marsh grass where you can get close enough to almost grab them . Have also seen them fly in group from a high roost the moment your within 200 feet .
On the nest with the chicks heads up is just a SPECIAL CATCH ..
Impressive Latin ( took 1 year of it 44 years ago )
