Avocet, Deep Water

The water was getting deep for this Avocet. It must have been around 10 inches (25cm). These are not the tall wading birds.

Their tiny feet are webbed, so I’m sure they can swim. Probably only when they have to.

Whatever (see above) he was catching it looked hardly worth the effort. With a thin turned bill maybe this is as big as they eat.
