Check out the Roseate Spoonbill fishing on Armand Bayou’s Horsepen Bayou.

These young Roseate Spoonbill siblings join each other to fish on ABNC’s Horsepen Bayou. They eat mainly small fish and crustaceans, getting their stunning color from the pigments in some of their foods.

    How wonderful! I had no idea pink spoonbills could be met here.

    Neat! And here I am thinking flamingos are the only birds who get pigmentation from food 🤦‍♀️
