Nature Notes: Avocet


Waaait, there's something wrong with this bird's legs?


And then it got up and a couple of adorable chicks fell out of the adult's plumage where they had taken shelter.


Look at those big feet :) It's a Pied Avocet (Recurvirostra avosetta)


and some Kingcups (Caltha palustris)

Nature Notes is hosted by Michelle at Rambling Woods

Photos were taken at Wildpark Eekholt. Here are some more photos, videos and soundfiles of Pied Avocets.
