Sandy-in-Alaska-100x-100There isn't very much in nature that is naturally pink except for flowers so who can resist a pink bird?
The Roseate Spoonbill has bright pink wings and dark pink "shoulders". These birds have a large spatula shaped bill and a naked head. The spoonbill makes it easy for them to catch the crustaceans they love to eat. They are wading birds, and the only Spoonbill species in the Western Hemisphere. They are a beautiful shade of pink apparently because of their diet but they are gorgeous in flight and they are PINK!
