G'day all

I've seen a few Spoonbills (mostly Yellow-billed) feeding in paddocks
lately, well away from water.  Not much water around of course at present
but I've never seen them in paddocks before.  I would have thought their
specialised bill would be unsuited to collecting insects from the ground.
I haven't had a chance to watch their behavious carefully to date.  Any
