Roseate Spoonbill (a bird a day)

The Roseate Spoonbill is yet ANOTHER bird from Luke Dempsey’s book, “A Supremely Bad Idea: Three Mad Birder’s and Their Quest To See It All.” At first glance or from afar, one might mistake this pink bird for a flamingo until they see its bill which is flat and wide. It uses this bill to strain water from its food. Quite handy indeed. It often has a red streak on its wing. Very beautiful birds. I’d love to see them in person.
