Terek Sandpiper 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 :-)<br />
This is the Best I could manage in those 3-4 secs with this bird.. <br />
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. <br />
