It is not often you catch two kingfishers side by side eating their catch. These little guys are great fisherman and have no trouble catching fish. They swallow them whole head first. You can see one about to do so and the other is trying to turn his catch around so he can swallow it head first. Many times they will whack the fishes head on the branch several times to kill it before turning the fish and eating it.
The American Avocet is one of my favorite wading birds. They are so graceful in flight and on the ground. I love their turned up beak and muted colors. The last photo is that of their two babies wading nearby to the adults. Notice the beginning of the up turned beak.
