“Roseate Spoonbill”

Locally common in coastal Florida, Texas, and southwest Louisiana, they are usually in small flocks, often associating with other waders. Spoonbills feed in shallow waters, walking forward slowly while they swing their heads from side to side, sifting the muck with their wide flat bills.

This shot was taken in a bird sanctuary, “Ding Darling” several miles south of where we live. Enjoy,
