Tuesday Tweets

Roseate Spoonbill
Roseate spoonbills are the only species of spoonbill found in North America. While most of the population is found in South America there are small breeding populations in coastal regions of Central America, Mexico, the Caribbean and around the gulf coast in the United States. They can be found in freshwater or saltwater wet lands, where they move their head from side to side and use their spoon shaped bill to sift through the water and mud looking for small fish, aquatic insects and crustaceans.

Beautiful birds. I saw my first at Merritt Island in Florida. Just a pink shadow passing overhead early in the morning but quite a sight.
