The Eurasian Spoonbill or Common Spoonbill is a wading bird, breeding in southern Eurasia from Spain to Japan, and also in North Africa. Most birds migrate to the tropics in winter, with European breeders mainly going to Africa, but a few remaining in mild winter areas of western Europe. It occurs in marshy wetlands with some open shallow water, nesting in colonies in trees or reedbeds.
