American Avocet ~ Recurvirostra americana

Searching for dinner

probably a male the bill/beak doesn’t appear to have an upturn of it at the end…


doin the Avocet sweep of the shallows floor for good things to eat

four in a row ~ a very pretty sight and there were actually a dozen were in the vicinity. The females with upturned beak/bill are between the two males, who sport a straighter bill. otherwise it's hard to sex these breeding Avocets.i wonder how they see their reflection ? be sure and notice their leg color ~ a pretty lite steel blue
