THE EURASIAN SPOONBILL/COMMON SPOONBILL:-I have captured this Common Spoonbill in Alipore Zoo where every year so many different kinds of birds come from different plces of the world.When it was flying over the lake I have captured its picture.This is the first time I saw this species there.I saw 10-12 at a glance.

The Eurasian Spoonbill is a wading bird of the Ibis and spoonbill family Threskiornithidae.
The breeding bird is all white except for its dark legs,black bill with a yellow tip,and a yellow brest patch like a Pelican.It has a crest in the breeding season.Non breeders lack the crest and breast patch,and immature bird have a pale bill and black tips to the primary flight feathers.

Scientific Classification:-
Species:P.leucorodia(Linnaeus 1758)

Thanks for viewing...

What a great portrait of this amazing bird. I have seen them using this rather awkward "tool" to help each other get rid of parasites and such, so it is still rather useful.... ;o)

You have managed to capture the "soul" of this beautiful bird so well!

i agree with lousat's words.,

a very original capture with live action. very good close up shot with nice background,beautiful spoonbill,i like it!


Hello Srikumar

Every person has his own taste (chaque personne ŕ son gout ŕ lui),
if you wouldn't zoomed fully, if we would also see the motion of the
other wing, this photo would be greater than it is now, your focus on
the bird's head is superb with great sharpness and details,
your POV obtained his eye-contact, TFS


I LOVE this! So artistic, simplistic and just look at the eye contact!! LOVELY!!!!Dynamic composition!!!!

Hello Srikumar,
This is really a beauty....What I like most are the fantastic colors of the wings. As usual a perfect focus and WB. Superb.....Another masterpiece with excellent clarity and sharp details.
Thanks for sharing!
