AVOCET

AVOCET

Recurvirostra

The avocet is a wading bird and can be found in mudflats in warmer climates. It is distinguished by its long thin upturned beak which it sweeps from side to side in the water to catch food. Its long legs and webbed feet help it search for food in the shallows. The avocet is known to intimidate other birds and cajole them into leaving their spots. Gregarious birds, they often fly, hunt migrate and nest in large flocks. They breed on open ground, mostly close to the water, and the egg is incubated by both parents. Its diet consists of insects and other small invertebrates and even small fish, crustaceans and amphibians.
