Roseate Spoonbills are not usually seen this far north in Florida so I was pleasantly surprised to step out onto my patio last night and see this guy. They are a very pretty pink and this one had the darker stripe on his wings. He must have been eating a lot of shrimp but not in my pond, I’m sure we don’t have any.
Spoonbills use their unique, spatulate bills to strain small food items.
I did see some of these guys about 2 years ago in another neighborhood; see Platypus in Trinity
They are a really pretty color with their darker pink feathers. Thought you might enjoy seeing our other pink bird.
