Roseate Spoonbill | Coastal Islands | North Carolina

Roseate Spoonbill

Rosebill_Ibis-OUT

The Roseate Spoonbill feeds in shallow fresh or coastal waters by swinging its bill from side to side as it steadily walks through the water, often in groups. The spoon-shaped bill allows it to sift easily through mud.

It feeds on crustaceans, insects, frogs, newts and very small fish ignored by larger waders. I photographed this bird along the small coastal islands of North Carolina.
