I chose to draw this bird as it’s one of the larger and more colorful birds native to Florida. It tends to migrate to shallow wetlands, both coastal and inland. They use their long spoon shaped bills to stir up little crustaceans in the shallow water flats. These crustaceans and aquatic invertebrates contain pigments called carotenoids, which help to turn the Roseate Spoonbill's feathers different shades pink.
