One of my favorite birds is the American Avocet. They are fairly common along the Texas coast and some actually summer in the Texas Panhandle, which seems like a strange location for a shorebird.

Like many species they are more colorful in their breeding plumage. Females have a shorter, more curved bill than the males.
