Glowing in the last vestiges of light about an hour after sunset, a flock of Roseate Spoonbills forage for small fish in near dark conditions. This coastal species is a tactile forager (feeds by touching its prey with its spatula-shaped bill) and requires shallow water with high densities of fish to forage effectively. Given these conditions are strongly influenced by the tide, the spoonbill’s ability to see and feed in low light may allow it to take advantage of both low tides in a 24 hour period (day and night), effectively doubling its time for foraging.
