Roseate Spoonbill

Common on the island year-round, The Roseate Spoonbill is a gregarious wading bird that’s pink color is derived from its diet, like the American Flamingo.  The colors vary from pale pink to bright magenta and are especially vibrant in the spring during the Texas mating and nesting season.

It feeds by walking in shallow water swinging its spoon-shaped bill from side to side sifting through mud for crustaceans, insects, frogs, and small fish.
