Roseate Spoonbill Trivia #2

Uploaded by: SunsetFL

Friday January 18, 2013

Lakeworth, FL

Caption: Diet: Spoonbills consume a varied diet of small fish, amphibians, aquatic invertebrates, and some plant material. They feed in the early morning and evening hours by wading through shallow water with their bills partially submerged. As a Roseate Spoonbill walks it swings its head back and forth in a sideways motion. When the bird feels a prey item it snaps its bill closed, pulls the prey out of the water, and swallows it.

Either that, or flamenco dancers? I can just them twirling and snapping their bills in place of castanets! Gorgeous image!

I am really quite sure that they were models for ballet dancers somewhere back in the dark reaches of history.

It must be difficult to preen with those bills.
Nice shot!

About SunsetFL

SunsetFL

People change and so do profiles. It was April 2004 that I started my photgraphy journey that started with posting pics of a family of owls. I didn't have a clue what depth of field, aperture, or manual mode were. But you folks and my husband encouraged me and we documented the owls until the last baby fledged and left home. Left with a huge hole in my time and a larger hole in my heart I started to photograph other birds, animals and of course sunrises and sunsets. Photography is absolutely my passion and birds in flight and nesting experiences are among my favorites.Create your own visitor map!
