Roseate Spoonbill Grooming

Peek-A-Boo

The sky was a glorious blue when I returned to the St. Augustine Alligator Farm for a second day. The birds were also pleased to have a nice day, and displayed all sorts of contortions going about their morning grooming.

This Spoonbill is starting to show the black stripe behind his eyes of an adult but still has the head feathers of a juvenile. You can also clearly see the orange tail feathers, one more unusual thing about this bird.
