Fun Facts for Kids
- Spoonbills are found on every continent except Antarctica.
- Roseate spoonbills receive their bright coloring from the diet. The organic pigment, called carotenoid, is produced by plants and algae, as well as several bacteria, and fungi. This carotenoid can be yellow, orange, or red and gives the characteristic color to pumpkins, carrots, corn, tomatoes, canaries, flamingos, salmon, lobster, shrimp, and even daffodils.
- Roseate spoonbills have an interesting gait. When they walk they swing their head back and forth in a sideways motion.
- The nostrils of spoonbills are located near the base of the bill so that the birds can breathe while their bill is submerged in water.
- Spoonbills have binocular vision, although, when foraging, tactile senses for these birds are important too.
- Spoonbill chicks are born with short and straight bills, and only gain the characteristic spoon-shape as they mature.
Roseate spoonbills are large long-legged wading birds found in the Americas. Adults have a bare greenish head and a white neck, back, and breast (with a tuft of pink feathers in the center when breeding), and are otherwise a deep pink. The colors can range from pale pink to bright magenta, depending on age, whether breeding or not, and location. Unlike herons, spoonbills fly with their necks outstretched, and they alternate groups of stiff, shallow wingbeats with glides.
