Another Day on the Beach with wildlife

Taking a warm afternoon walk along the beach I spotted these three American Avocet quickly dancing, hopping and scurrying in the shallow water poking their long beaks into the water scooping up the tiny sand crabs that live under the sand. These birds were fascinating to watch with their quick movements with the moving tide, extremely long graceful legs and beautiful colors of cinnamon on the heads and brown feather on backs and wings. They stood out against the clear blue water.
