What are these American Avocets doing?

Recommended Posts

Am I allowed to ask behavioral questions here?  If not, please direct me to the appropriate site.  Can I assume the Avocet resting it's chin on the water is a female and is "presenting"?  Or is this some kind of courtship posturing?  What I expected to happen, didn't.  So now I'm unsure.

I searched up American Avocet courtship display, and yeah that appears to be what they're doing. Interesting!

I posted a photo similar to this on the LOL forum topic. Check it out on the link below. It's near the bottom of the page. I think my explanation is better!!! 😁
