Pretty in pink

Pretty in pinkI think she’s getting ready to out dancing, so she’s preening and fluffing her beautiful feathers.  I took this at Busch Gardens in Florida.  Thanks to Melanie, we now know this is a Roseate Spoonbill:)  THANK YOU MELANIE:)

Oh my gosh i think i found out what she is… i can’t see all of her beak but i think she is a Roseate Spoonbill

You can read all about them here : http://nightbreeze.com/Roseate_Spoonbill.html

Some clips from above:
“Strange, but beautiful The Roseate Spoonbill is one of the most awkward-looking birds you’ll see in Florida. You might even call it homely, with its strange bill and bald head. But Nature has made up for this by giving it beautifully colored plumage. This tropical wading bird stands about three feet tall. Its plumage is various shades of pink and red. When you see a Roseate Spoonbill, you will first notice its colorful feathers. Then you will be struck by the contrast of its wrinkly, bald greenish head that, unfortunately, resembles a vulture’s.”

“The adult’s light green head is bald in front and has a black band of color that makes the bird look like it is wearing headphones.”
