Roseate Spoonbill

(Ajaia ajaja)

In the early part of the century, roseate spoonbill numbers were declining dramatically due to plume hunters who sought their beautiful plumage for fashion. But with the passing of the Lacey Act and other protective laws, the roseate spoonbill numbers increased and healthy populations thrive today. Preferring mangrove and saltwater lagoons along the Gulf of Mexico from Texas to Florida, the roseate spoonbill feeds on shrimp, small fish and aquatic insects.
