Spoon Clappers With Personality

While photographing the Ibis at my local park's small lake this Roseate Spoonbill flew in for a visit. It was my first close encounter with this bird. I watched it wade in the shoreline, fish for food, drink the lake water, and then come on to the grass when I captured this photo of its extremely unique bill. This is a juvenile roseate spoonbill but its feathers are all pink and beautiful with its wings spread.
