The most distinctive feature of the Roseate Spoonbill is its bill, which is long, flat, and spoon-shaped. The bill is used to sift through shallow water and mud for prey, such as small fish, crustaceans, and insects. Roseate Spoonbills typically live in marshes, swamps, and shallow coastal waters, and they are often found near other wading birds such as egrets and herons. They are known for their unique feeding behavior, which involves swinging their bill back and forth through the water to catch prey. The bird’s plumage is also striking, with a pale pink body and a bright pink patch on its wings. During breeding season, the birds’ feathers become even more vibrant, with bright red and orange hues on their wings and backs.They also use their feet to stir up the mud and flush out hidden prey. It is a medium-sized bird, measuring approximately 28-34 inches  in length, with a wingspan of 50-53 inches .
