Spoon it Up!

Continuing on with mom's Big World Report from Costa Rica, here we have the only large pink bird found in Costa Rica! It is the Roseate Spoonbill.

What an elegant bird this is and what a great concept to have a "Spoon-Bill"!

Mom saw a flock of them on her canal boat ride, and said they were very beautiful. The tour guide said they like it when boats go by because......

......it stirs up the bottom of the canal, so they can find food more easily. And all they do it just "Spoon up their Supper"!

Mom said it was an amazing sight to see all the pink Spoonbills up in a tree too.

And, what makes it more special, is they hollered down from the tree at mom, and said:
"Of course we want to be JB's friends! We feel honored to know the world renowned Cat, JB"

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by JB's SMALL WORLD too, thanks!

Thank you for the report on these beautiful birdies!

We think Virgil would not be intimidated by their size and would still try to go and catch one.
