Daily Image #20Yesterday’s image was the odd Ibis, with its curved bill and punctuated eye. ┬áToday we have the even more odd Roseate Spoonbill. The magnificent color of its feathers nearly caused the extinction of this extraordinary bird. In the early 20th Century the feathers were prized for women’s hats. What a sin it would have been to lose this beautiful bird for fashion.
