“The roseate spoonbill nests in shrubs or trees, often mangroves,
laying two to five eggs, which are whitish with brown markings.
Immature birds have white, feathered heads, and the pink of the plumage is paler.
The bill is yellowish or pinkish.
.
Ibises all have long, down-curved bills, and usually feed as a group,
probing mud for food items, usually crustaceans.
They are monogamous and highly territorial while nesting and feeding.
Most nest in trees, often with spoonbills or herons.”
