Avocet Stroll Along The River

Avocet Stroll Along the River by Debra Martz American This American Avocet is in its winter/non-breeding plumage. During breeding season this elegant bird dons a chic rusty head and neck that turns grayish white after breeding. As the Avocet wades through shallow water, it sweeps its bill side to side for aquatic invertebrates. It is a migratory bird and I saw very few still at the Great Salt Plains Lake near Jet, Oklahoma on this last trip.
Scientific name: Recurvirostra americana
