Bird Images: Avocet (Recurvirostra avosetta) in Okinawa
Some places in the world, attorneys wore black caps that resembled this bird's head.
Only, the ambulance chasers were called, advocates.
Now, I'm wondering if those dudes had crooked beaks, too.
This one was spotted in Tomigusuku, Okinawa this morning.
It didn't stand still very often so, I shot a few gigabytes of photos to capture it.
They like feeding in wetlands and will eat fish, invertebrates, bugs and worms.
In this species the male and female, take turns, incubating the eggs.
Since this was the only bird like this in the open, maybe another one was stuck egg-sitting.
