Pied Avocets

  // December 04, 2009 f/5.6, 1/2000s, ISO 100 (more •)

\ A pair of Pied Avocets flying on marshland at Uran, near Mumbai. These are migratory birds that come to India in winter from Europe/Central Asia. Apparently, they are called so because their black caps look like European advocates /lawyers from olden days! \
