The African Spoonbill is a large species of wading bird found in parts of Africa, including Madagascar, Kenya, and South Africa. Their preferred habitat includes shallow water and wetlands.
Like other kinds of spoonbills, the African Spoonbill feeds by swinging its uniquely-shaped bill from side to side in the water, catching food like fish, insects, and crustaceans.
African Spoonbills can be recognized by their white plumage, reddish legs and bare red face. And of course the unique shape of the bill stands out.
