American Avocet

Recurvirostra americana


Beaches, flats, shallow lakes, prairie ponds. On shallow waters and extensive mudflats, both along coast and in the interior.


Another exciting first spotting for me. There was a group busily feeding through out this pond. That's an impressive bill. Non-breeding plumage.

Nice find. These birds are quite common in my part of N. America during breeding season.
