Linking up with Wild Bird Wednesday and Nature Notes and NC Sue Wordless
I hope you can join in and share your wild birds and nature scenes.
For this week's Wild Bird I am sharing the Roseate Spoonbill I saw during our Florida trips. We were able to see the Roseate Spoonbill in various parks like Merritt Island NWR, Corkscrew Sanctuary and the Circle B Reserve.
This bird has long legs, neck and a grey bill.
The Pink feathers are a deep pink when in breeding season.
The Spoonbill swings its bill from side to side looking for food in the water. The spoon shape helps it to sift thru mud.
The Roseate Spoonbill nest in shrubs or trees and can lay from 2-5 eggs. It is a beautiful birds with its coloring and one of my favorite Florida birds. I hope you enjoyed my wild bird post and photos. Till next week's wild bird post. Join in and post your birdies and to see more beautiful and wonderful bird and nature photos please visit:
