Description

A lone spoonbill feeding among pied shag and canada geese. I have selected 'adult' as it is just starting to show the colours of a breeding adult (though pale) and already has the dark adult bill so I don't think juvenile is accurate.

Description from Wikipedia

The family Threskiornithidae includes 34 species of large wading birds. The family has been traditionally classified into two subfamilies, the ibises and the spoonbills; however recent genetic studies are casting doubt on the arrangement, and revealing the spoonbills to be nested within the old world ibises, and the new world ibises as an early offshoot.
