SpoonbillsAndBarred Owls

Spoonbills... Spoonbills are birds that prefer fresh water over salt water but can be found in both environments. The scientific name for a black-faced spoonbill is platalea minor. The scientific name for a rosiate spoonbill is platalea ajaja. Spoonbills get their name by their spoon-shaped bill. They use this spoon-shaped bill to get food. They eat small aquatic animals by dipping their bills into the water, and wait for the animals to swim into them. When animals swim into the spoonbill's bill, it shuts its bill, and eats its prey.
