Wildlife Wonders
Known for their agile grace and coastal habitat, the beautiful Avocet brings elegance to life. The four species of avocets are considered waders in the same avian family as the stilts.
Avocets have long legs and long, thin, upcurved bills which they sweep from side to side when feeding in the wetlands where they typically live. Members of this genus have webbed feet and readily swim. Their diet consists of aquatic insects and other small creatures. They nest on the ground in loose colonies.
