Eurasian Spoonbill

The Eurasian Spoonbill or Common Spoonbill is a wading bird of the Ibis and Spoonbill family and can be easily identified by its spoon-shaped/spatula tip of the bill. They are mostly silent as they lack voice producing capabilities. Even at their breeding colonies the main sounds are bill snapping, occasional deep grunting and occasional trumpeting noises.
