African Spoonbill

The African spoonbill (Platalea alba) is a long-legged wading bird of the ibis and spoonbill family. The species is widespread across Africa  including Botswana, Kenya, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, and Zimbabwe. It usually resides by shallow inland waters which is where we found it in Amboseli. This bird’s habitat includes river banks, lake shores, marshes, plains, savannas, swamps, and water-meadows.
