ANDEAN AVOCET Recurvirostra andina


The South American avocet, mainly restricted to the high altitude puna of the Andean chain, in Peru, Bolivia, N.Chile and NW. Argentina. It has the most recurved bill of all four species, and relatively short legs, which with its somewhat bulky body, make it less elegant than the others.
