Rare Pink Water Bird Lands In Michigan, Much To Joy Of The General People

SALINE, Mich. — Bird enthusiasts are flocking to a creek in southern Michigan with cameras and binoculars to witness a unique creature with pink feathers and a big beak.

According to Molly Keenan of Michigan Audubon, the roseate spoonbill was discovered in Saline in the Koch Warner Drain, making it the first in Michigan.

The bird, which is native to the Gulf Coast region, may have escaped from a zoo or is “extremely disoriented,” according to Saline police, who set up traffic cones on a road to control traffic.

Benjamin Winger, the bird curator at the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology, stated, “Sometimes they go a little too far.”

Whatever the cause, a word about the bird has spread. Sally Most and her husband drove from Fairmount, Indiana, about 200 miles (322 kilometers).

“You see a lot of the same birds after a while, and then you see something unusual….” “Last night, I shot almost 300 photographs of it,” Most told the Detroit Free Press. “We’re going to be happy campers when we go home.”
