Avocet In Shallows

Tall, almost dainty, these stilt birds feed on tiny insects, larvae, and things we can’t even see.

Their breeding plumage is a pretty rust color along the neck and head. These are the non-breeding colors.

Avocet winter here and along the Southeastern coast. Breeding is further west and up into Canada.

We do get to see their colors before they head out though.
