CommentIt is not entirely uncommon to see these birds foraging away from water though they generally don't stray too far away from moist or muddy areas. This bird was seen actively seeking gnats that were sheltering down low or amongst the dead vegetation. Some of these can be seen as bright spots as they flew up in front of this bird.
