Roseate Spoonbill (Female)

Roseate Spoonbill (Female)
The Roseate Spoonbill is a gregarious wading bird of the ibis family. It is a resident breeder in South America mostly east of the Andes, and in coastal regions of the Caribbean, Central America, Mexico, and the Gulf Coast of the United States. Like the American Flamingo, their pink color is diet-derived. The colors can range from pale pink to bright magenta, depending on age and location. Unlike herons, spoonbills fly with their necks outstretched. They alternate groups of stiff, shallow wingbeats with glides. This species feeds in shallow fresh or coastal waters by swinging its bill from side to side as it steadily walks through the water, often in groups. The spoon-shaped bill allows it to sift easily through mud. It feeds on crustaceans, aquatic insects, frogs, newts and very small fish ignored by larger waders. Taken a Sylvan Heights Bird Park. Cropped only; otherwise untouched.
