Norman Bates was right: The old “You eat like a bird” adage isn’t true — birds really do eat a tremendous lot!
The American Avocet orphan we recently profiled on this blog is growing up fast, thanks to a shorebird smorgasboard which includes live food.
Our volunteer staff photographer Bill Steinkamp took a few photographs of this patient during a recent visit.
Like all shorebirds, avocets are affected by coastal development and human disturbance, as was the case with this animal. Your support of International Bird Rescue directly benefits wonderful birds such as this little one!
