Avocets

Avocets: The four species of avocets are a genus, Recurvirostra, of waders in the same avian family as the stilts. The genus name comes from Latin recurvus, "curved backwards" and rostrum, "bill". For obvious reasons.


Here they seem to enjoy a bit of rough and tumble, with one stomping on the others back and head and pushing it underwater.
