Something you don’t see every day

Aside from not seeing Red Knots every day, take a look at the bill on the bird to the right. We often think of bird bills as being rigid, and many bird have rigid bills. But some are able to flex. I have seen slow motion video of humming birds flexing their bills. This is the first time that I’ve photographed this.
