  • Roseate Spoonbill (Platalea ajaja)


    Roseate Spoonbill (Platalea ajaja) by Paolo Dolina, on Flickr

    Unique pink wading bird with long, flat, spoon-shaped bill. Adults are mostly pink overall, with scarlet wing patches, orange tail, and bare pale-green head. Immatures are duller than adults but still washed with pale pink. Sometimes mistaken for a flamingo, but note spoonbill's distinctive bill, shorter legs, and shorter neck. Occurs in freshwater and saltwater wetlands from the Gulf Coast of the U.S. through much of South America. Feeds by sifting side-to-side through shallow water. Often in small loose groups, sometimes with other wading birds like storks and herons.

      Colours are amazing, well photographed in their normal surroundings and just doing what they do.

        Like flamingos only prettier
        Better a full bottle in front of me
        than a full frontal lobotomy.

          Fantastic colours. We do get spoonbills but nothing like these.
