Steering a careful course in a sea 'foul with floating mines,' the Cork steamship avocet was attacked by three aeroplanes.
Witness the experience of the avocet on her voyage from Rotterdam.
The avocet is interesting and attractive in appearance, without having any especially notable characteristics.
The Australian avocet is one species of a cosmopolitan genus.
The nest of the avocet is a very simple structure, generally made by placing a few blades of grass in a hole in the sand.
The avocet's bill is sharply curved upwards, and is one of the most remarkable of such organs.
The avocet stands about twenty inches in height, although its body is but little bigger than that of a Pigeon.
They are about the size of the avocet, and sometimes 322 attain the height of six-and-twenty inches.
Later, we experimented on many oological varieties, especially Stilt's and avocet's eggs.
The use of the avocet's recurved bill is clearly explained by the manner in which the bird procures its food.
