Roseate Spoonbill

Roseate Spoonbill (Platalea ajaja)

Olivia and I photographed this remarkable bird at Celery Fields Preserve in Sarasota, Florida.

Seen here with a Limpkin  (Aramus guarauna)

Both of these birds feed on Apple Snails
Apple Snails (Pomacea diffusa)
Stalking the elusive Roseate Spoonbill....more from Celery Fields tomorrow!
