The African Spoonbill is a wading bird prevalent throughout Africa. It can be distinguished from the similar Eurasian/Common Spoonbill (Platalea leucorodia)
by its pink face and on some birds also pink or partly pink legs rather than white face and black legs. It also has pink edging rather than a yellow tip to its grey bill.
(The Eurasian/Common Spoonbill is found in northeast Africa as well as through most of continental Europe and most of Asia.)
