Transcript VOLUME VII No. 8 DECEMBER 1958 ***** ♦Spoonbills, often called pink curlews, are cou-4 ♦sins of the egrets. They live in tropical and ♦ ♦subtropical countries and only one species, our* *own roseate spoonbill, comes north to the U. S.* ♦its very odd bill is not used as a scoop, but ♦ ♦is swung back and forth in muddy water to pick * *up killifishes, small prawn and water insects. * ♦in spite of the fact that its plumage was not ♦ ♦valued by milliners as it fades too quickly, * *the plume hunters nearly exterminated the bird * *as its plumes were popular for making fans. * ♦The shyness of the spoonbill during nesting sea* ♦son and. tendency to be frightened from the rook* ♦eries by the plume hunters, was another factor ♦ ♦in its near extermination. ♦ ** *********************** PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB.
