Original Oil Painting of an Immature Roseate Spoonbill preening. Gorgeous at a distance, bizarre up close. Immature is the stage between juvenile and adult. Their appearance is like a teenager’s, with that youthful vigor. Head had just lost its feathers with a smooth surface.. Feathers starting to gain color. They all forage in the shallows of fresh, brackish, and marine waters. After they come out of the water they preen. At certain times of the year they molt and preen. Preening is grooming themselves.
