In the late 1800s, the roseate spoonbill was on the brink of extinction in North America. This large bird was hunted for its beautiful pink-and-white feathers, which were used to make hats and fans. However, conservationists and government agencies stepped in to help, and their efforts helped the roseate spoonbill population recover. These animals can now be found in the wetlands of Florida, Louisiana, and Texas. The birds’ future survival depends on protecting their habitat in the Gulf Coast region. In Roseate Spoonbill: Pretty in Pink, kids go on a real-life adventure with scientists in the field as they study these magnificent wild birds. Along the way, children will discover the roseate spoonbill’s life cycle, diet, behavior, and physical characteristics. Large, full-color photos and a dramatic narrative format will keep readers turning the pages.
