Willet, Tringa semipalmata: Indian Shores Beach, Florida
Another Willet from my shoot on Indian Shores Beach back in early July. This is one of two Willets that were fighting on the beach. This Willet was chasing another, while verbally scolding it adversary. Note the hinged tongue, it has backward-pointing papillae that ensures the food only goes in one direction.
