Ever try to pick up a bug with a set of wide tongs?
This is an quite occupied African white spoonbill (Platalea alba)
The African white spoonbill is a large wading bird. It lives in large, shallow inland waters and marshy wetlands in sub-Saharan Africa and Madagascar.
It is a carnivore. It eats fish, crayfish, grasshoppers, locusts and water insects.
It wades on long legs through shallow water and feeds by sweeping its open bill from side-to-side.
Prey is trapped in the mandibles and tossed back into the throat.
