Roseate Spoonbill

in #nature3 years ago

Look at this video I got of one of the coolest birds I know, the Roseate Spoonbill. Why is it called a Spoonbill? If you look at the end of it's bill it looks like a spoon. In North America his bird can only be found in the South East of the United States and most of Mexico. Many people mistake it for a Flamingo when they see it from afar or for the first time. It does get a pink color in it's feathers like a Flamingo, especially when it is in breeding plumage.

Here is a picture I got of two of them.

Nice couple!

Great vid. They are really funky birds with a definitive beak.

Great job done, and it's really amazing to hear that you are an professional photographer and your videos are telecasted on TV. And these birds are really amazing and uniquely structured and the add on effect of this picture is the lightly pinkish body colour of these birds. Thanks for sharing this amazing work with us and keep up the great work. Wishing you an great day and stay blessed. 🙂

Glad you like it!

Yes it's awesome. 🙂

Amazing photography and nature..

Beautiful bird the roseate spoonbill. The pictures are amazing too and the video is fabulous. You are a great photographer no doubt. But did you know that the Roseate Spoonbills get their pink color from their food! They feed on crustaceans who in turn have fed on algae.

Lovely write up and very educative...
I'm new to steemit, i know people like you can make me great here
