We were shooting lesser sand plovers and suddenly this fellow caught my attention!! My friend possess bigger tele(600mm) so I told him to lookat his left we have terek in the flock :-)
This is the Best I could manage in those 3-4 secs with this bird..
This bird shows little similar beak structure as you can see in Pied Avocets.. A beak Curved upward so that they can wave their beak little lower and catch their prey without any trouble.
Its beautiful to watch them foraging!!
The Terek sandpiper is a small migratory Palearctic wader species, the only member of the genus ''Xenus''. It is named after the Terek River which flows into the west of the Caspian Sea, as it was first observed around this area.
