The Yellow-billed Spoonbill (Platalea flavipes) is common in south-east Australia, not unusual on the remainder of the continent, and a vagrant to New Zealand, Lord Howe Island and Norfolk Island.
It nests in trees, marshes or reed-beds, and often roosts in trees. It occurs in shallows of fresh wetlands and occasionally on dry pasture. It feeds largely on aquatic life, which it finds by sweeping its bill from side to side. Like all members of the ibis and spoonbill family, it always flies with their head extended.
