In the Book of Job we are instructed to, "Ask...the birds...and they will tell you." In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said, "Look at the birds." So let's ask the birds, and look at the birds, and see what they have to say. May God bless you in your quest! Bill Bossman

Elegant is the one word that comes to mind when I see an American Avocet. These graceful shorebirds are fairly common out here on the Great Plains wherever there are shallow lakes or flooded fields. The incredibly long, thin bill is useful for feeding in the shallow water or probing in the soft mud. American Avocet... a study in elegance and beauty. What a bird!
