Spoonbill Crow


Spoonbills are a genus of large wading birds with spoon-shaped bills. Alas, none of the species are found around the Lake. 

What we do have is a spoonbill in morphology, if not in name: the Northern Shoveler. 

Yet, I have just photographed another one: the exceedingly rare Spoonbill Crow.

A flock of Northern Shovelers display their spoon-shaped bills.

Today, the exceedingly rare Spoonbill Crow flew past me. (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.)

    I refuse to laugh at this. I happen to like to spoon, myself.
