Painting of a Roseate Spoonbill preening. Gorgeous at a distance, bizarre up close until you fall in love with their splendor. They forage in the shallows of fresh, brackish, and marine waters. After they come out of the water they preen. Certain times of the year they molt and preen. Preening is how they clean themselves, bending sometime to look like a feathered heart.
