g'day all
Alastair Smith saw a royal spoonbill and a yellow-billed spoonbill
collaboratively feeding and asked if this is common behaviour?
My recollection is that Royals very often feed by themselves BUT Yellow-billed are more frequently seen with a group of Royals.
In other words I rarely see Yellow-bills feeding alone.
