the show-off

The Audubon.org web site says the Roseate Spoonbill is “Gorgeous at a distance and bizarre up close” and I have to agree.  Just the eyes alone are enough to give you bad dreams if you are close enough.

I think the black markings are part of the breeding plumage since they don’t normally have that.
