Roseate Spoonbill Photos and Information

Roseate Spoonbill Photos and Information
The Roseate Spoonbill is well loved by birders for its gorgeous pink feathers and its funny spoon-shaped beak.



The Roseate is just over 3 pounds and has a wingspan of just over 4'. They use their spoon-bill to stir up the muck in shallow bay areas and eat the insects they find there.



We always have great luck seeing these at the Wild Bird Center on Key Largo in Florida. Well worth a visit!
