“Do you want to be the big spoon?”

Did you know Spoonbills are in the same family as Ibises? Neither did I until I looked them up to write this blurb. Check us out! Learning together.

I also found out that when I chose this VERY pink colour scheme I was likely using a Roseate Spoonbill as my reference photo — a sub-species found in South and North America — as opposed to the Yellow-billed and Black-billed variations that are here in Australia.

So if you’ll excuse me, I have to go and pull this work out of my “Aussie Birds” folder.
