Spoonbills are large, long-legged wading birds with dramatic spoon-shaped bills.
Roseate Spoonbill Ajaja ajaja belongs to the family Threskiornithidae consisting of Ibises and Spoonbills, and the subfamily of Plataleinae or spoonbills and genus Platalea spoonbills:

Common Spoonbill, Platalea leucorodia'
Black-faced Spoonbill, Platalea minor
African Spoonbill, Platalea alba
Royal Spoonbill, Platalea regia
Yellow-billed Spoonbill, Platalea flavipes
Roseate Spoonbill, Platalea ajaja

Evolution and natural selection has done a lot of strange things to bills but the spoonbill is one of the most dramatic. Its range is shown in the map from NatureServe. It is a permanent resident of southern Florida, coasts along the Gulf of Mexico and non-jungle South America.
