FLORIDA BIRDS

What makes them different

SPOONBILL

A spoonbill has an oddly shaped beak. One adaptation helps when it dips its beak into the water to catch fish in the sand. It's beak filters out the sand so it only catches fish. The spoonbill is preyed on by poachers and sharks. As I told you a trait for the spoonbill is it filtering sand out of its beak.
