Pied Avocet

Pied Avocet is a wading or shorebird found across mudflats, wetlands and swamps foraging while sweeping their bills side by side. They can be easily identified by their thin upwardly curved bills and long legs. Similar to other waders, they have long legs and webbed feet to help them with hunting for food in the shallows. The Pied Avocet’s call is loud, melodious and goes “kloo-it” or “kleep“.
