The roseate spoonbill (platalea ajaja), essentially a neotropical bird, is a resident breeder in South America, mostly east of the Andes, and in coastal regions of the Caribbean, Central America, Mexico, the Gulf Coast of the United States through Florida up to central Florida on the Atlantic coast. Of the six species of spoonbills, it is the only one found in the New World and the only one whose head becomes completely bald as it ages.
The spoonbill walks slowly through fresh and coastal waters swinging its bill from side to side in the shallow water searching for the crustaceans, insects, frogs, newts and very small fish that it feeds upon. Its sensitive spoon shaped bill makes it easy to even sift through muddy water in its search for prey.
Its pink coloring, like the flamingos, is derived from the crustaceans it eats.
