Roseate Spoonbills

Roseate Spoonbills

I'm so excited to see Roseate Spoonbills returning for the Spring!  They are the most incredible looking, giant pink birds.  

Here are some fun facts about Roseate Spoonbills:

Roseate spoonbills are bright pink birds with long, spoon-shaped bills. They populate marsh areas in South Carolina, Florida and the Gulf Coast where their populations are recovering from decades of over-hunting.

Spoonbills fly in long diagonal lines with their necks and legs completely stretched out.

Spoonbills get their pink color from their food! They feed on crustaceans who in turn have fed on algae.

The collective noun for spoonbills is bowl.
