African Spoonbills

African Spoonbills

On a drive this morning I came across half a dozen spoonbills fishing in a small lagoon near here. As the lagoons dry out at this time of year parties of these birds travel from one to the other and systematically clear out all the stranded fish. They were so engrossed in their fishing that they didn’t seem to notice me lying on the ground only a few feet away from them. They are pretty cool looking birds with their red faces and bright blue eyes.
