American Avocet & Wilsons Phalarope

American Avocet & Wilson's Phalarope

West Wendover, Elko Co NV

Nice pair of swimmers, this young Wilson's is much farther along in molt than the prevous bird.

Avocets are very powerful swimmers, as evidenced by the wake this bird is creating; their feet toes are fully webbed.
