Description

A gorgeous Royal Spoonbill. Had all the same features- long dark spoon shaped bill, crest of feathers at the back of its head. Saw quite close across the Taruheru River in Gisborne. It was walking along the shallow side of the river with its beak in the water, sweeping its head from side to side, coming up every now and then to swallow its food. About 8pm at low tide.

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.
