Number of Roseate Spoonbills shrinking

The Miami Herald reports that the number of roseate spoonbills is shrinking from the Everglades and Florida Bay. According to the article, this year's breeding sentence was the worst in more than 40 years. Audubon of Florida is looking to ask the Legislature to push for ''fast-tracking'' the South Florida Water Management District's plans to reroute and redesign a canal that has negatively impacted the spoonbill's breeding grounds.
