There are 6 species of Spoonbill birds in 2 genera  distributed over much of the world. They're monogamous for one season at a time. All Spoonbills have large, flat, spatulate bills and feed by wading through shallow water, sweeping the partly opened bill from side to side, when any small aquatic creature touches the inside of the bill it is snapped shut. Spoonbills generally prefer fresh water to salt but are found in both environments.
