Eurasian Spoonbill

We recently encountered Eurasian spoonbills in both the Tagus and Sado River Estuaries south of Lisbon, Portugal. This was not a first, we'd seen them previously in Sri Lanka, and our views were not as good, but they are still fun to see. 
This is their range in Europe, pretty spotty, from Wikipedia (they are also found in Africa and Asia).

  1. One of my favorite water birds because of the sheer weirdness of that beak.
