I write about how the Spoonbill will ‘sift’ through the water, moving their head back and forth, when feeding. These shots are a good example.
This Spoonbill was walking, almost running, through the shallows sifting the water to catch small shrimp and crabs one morning.
Best viewed large.
You can see the water flowing past him as the tide changed.
In this last shot you can see the water going through his open spoon shaped bill. Moving and constantly turning his head allows him to work through all the flowing water.
