The face seemed to have a pair of long -handle spoons, and the food with kitchen utensils in the birds -spoonbill


I used to have a classmate when I was in college before, and he was a well -known foodie. To what extent? He will put a few mini bottle in his clothes pocket, which are cumin powder, pepper noodles, salt and pepper, and pepper.


Because the school cafeteria is different from the restaurant outside, there is no free seasoning tank on the table, so he takes himself. Every time he goes to the cafeteria to eat the small bottle on the table, he also allows the classmates to eat his seasonings. We are all sighed -this is really a person, even the seasoning is with ourselves.

However, there are similar foodies in nature, and even the mouth has evolved into a portable kitchenware, such as spoonbill.


The spoonbill is a bird of Pelic, the chills of the chills (鹮), and the spoonbill Ya family. There are currently 6 types: Euras Spoon, African spoonbill, royal spoonbill, black -faced spoonbill, pink spoonbill , Yellow -mouth spoonbill.

The six types of birds of spoonbills are somewhat different in distributed areas, body shapes, and feathers, but they all have beaks that are specially become rice shovel.

It is worth mentioning that the English name of spoonbill is SPOONBILL, where Spoon means a spoon, and Bill means the bird’s beak. The combination is simple and vivid and vivid.


The beak is an important living props for birds. It can not only be used for dinner, but also sometimes responsible for multiple tasks: tweeting, nesting, breeding, fighting, puppets, smooth hair, etc.


Different types of bird’s beaks are also different, and they have long -lasting evolutionary evolution of birds for living environment.

For example, the beak of the woodpecker has become a multi -layer shock -absorbing and sturdy chisel; the Pelicans’ beaks have turned into large bags that can be filtered; Probe. In addition to spoonbill, the mouth of the spoonful mouth is like a pair of flat rice spoons.


The beak of spoonbill is a bit similar to the duck, both flat, but the beak of the duck is relatively short, and the beak of the spoonbill is very long, the front end is wide, the middle part slowly becomes thinner, and the back end gradually increases. Wide, stunned on his face.


Spoonbill’s beak is also a manifestation of lifestyle. They live by the water and like small creatures in the water in the water and the bottom of the water, such as the aquatic limbs, the crustaceans, and the small fish.

During the predation, the spoonbill will open the beak slightly, and the upper and lower pieces will reach into the water and shake it back and forth, just like the big clip when we eat barbecue, all kinds of tumbling in the water.

Spoonbill can flip the sediment under the water through this movement, so that small fish, shrimp, crabs and other animals expose their lives and turn their heads. The spoonbill is sandwiched with these two shovels, swallowed into the abdomen, and a meal of full meal.

There are different differences in the appearance of six spoonbills.


In terms of hairstyles, the royal spoonbill and yellow -billed spoonbill are ordinary white wool; black -faced spoonbill and Eurasian spoonbill have several long hairs; African spoonbill and pink spoonbill It is bald, which is more like birds in the chocolate.


Spoonbill is a bit different in hatching, similar to African dwarfs. During the reproduction, female spoonbills will produce one or three eggs at a time, but they will not hatch at the same time. Instead, they incubate separately and incubate and brood in turn.

The spoonbill born in the broken shell did not have a spoon mouth like parents, but gradually evolved into a flat rice spoon during development.
