Family Threskiornithidae

Roseate Spoonbill

Members of this family are known for their distinctive bills. The bill of the ibis is usually long with a very curved shape. The bill of the spoonbill is a thick, flattened, and wide-tipped. Unlike most birds, which hunt by sight, most members of this family hunt by touch. The ibis uses its bill to inspect small holes and soft mud. Spoonbills usually swing their open bills through the water, capturing small fish and insects. These birds are social and, with a few exceptions, nest in colonies.
