4th place
I was watching a Roseate Spoonbill feeding in the marsh which is always fun right there. But what made this my favorite of the week was when the Spoonbill came upon a baby Alligator (2-3 footer). The Spoonbill stared at it for a bit then I was astonished to see the Spoonbill pick up the gator's tail!
