American Avocet

On a recent visit to Surfside I enjoyed watching a couple of American Avocets foraging in the shallow water. I tried to ease my way down to the ground for a low angle and I guess I must have looked a bit too intimidating because as soon as I was down two of the birds flew off. The last remaining avocet gave me this amazing wing-stretch before it took off to follow the others. What cool looking birds avocets are!
