Audubon of Florida says it's discovered the oldest wild Roseate
spoonbill on record while studying the species as part of Everglades
Restoration in Florida Bay. Researchers captured the 16-year-old they’ve named Enrico last month as part of a new Spoonbill Satellite Telemetry Project. Audubon Research Director Jerry Lorenz says the pink-colored bird has more than doubled the known life expectancy of a roseate spoonbill.
The organization hopes to get an interactive website up soon so everyone can watch the satellite data being brought in from the spoonbills.
