Spoon-bills

Spoon-bills

The African Spoon-bill is a really cool bird with a bill designed specially for fishing. I came across this pair in the Lagoon near camp. The cheeky juvenile was following his mum around relentlessly, often with his wing over her back and shoving his beak down her throat for some regurgitated fish at any opportunity. It makes me feel like retching just looking at these photos!
