Sunset Chick

The American Avocet chick came close, then turned and left. I liked how the sun lit up the chick's face here. It is wonderful when a scene catches the slanting last rays of the sun.

 

Another thing I noticed is that at this stage, the chick's bill is straight and not upturned like the adult's bill.
