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.
