Royal spoonbill - Nest Building, Courtship, and Mating

This video shoes two Royal Spoonbills (Platalea regia) also known as the Black-billed spoonbill, engaged in nest building, courtship, and mating. The Royal spoonbill is quite uncommon in Tasmania with only a handful of birds around the state in recent years.

  7. A lovely video and what fun it is to watch this nest building of these amazing birds. I live in Texas, and there are many similar birds who winter here and are amazing to watch. such large and uncomfortable looking nests they are...
