#funfact: #Spoonbills have a specialized feeding style known as "head-swinging" in which they plunge their bills under water and swing them from side to side. The bill has sensitive touch receptors and when it detects vibrations given off by prey, it will quickly snap shut. Of the six species of spoonbill, the Roseate spoonbill is the only one with bright #pink plumage! Photo by @kaigner. #birds#wildlife#wings
