American Avocets work in flocks. Not huge groups like some birds, yet 10 – 15 is not unusual.
The others in the group moved down away and this one stayed.
That’s much better for getting a decent shot. It’s nice to see all the birds but composing and framing is hard. There is always a piece of another bird in the viewfinder.

oh they are different in your part of the world
We also have a Black Stilt. Same family, long, long, legs, very thin, almost like a dancer.
