African Birds Part 2: African Spoonbill
This carnivorous bird stands as tall as 3 feet and uses its most prominent attribute to fish for small fish and aquatic invertebrates, such as crayfish and water beetles on the African Watering Hole Live Cam.
The African Watering Hole Live Cam is a good place to catch hippos and crocodiles, which means it’s a great place to see an African Spoonbill. African spoonbills have been observed following Nile crocodiles and hippopotamuses to eat food stirred up by these large animals. While it lives off of the water, like most other birds, this one’s nest, usually in trees above water, is built from sticks and reeds and lined with leaves.
