American Avocet

by Allen_Woodliffe from Chatham CA on 10 Aug 2016

American Avocets are a large shorebird, breeding mainly in the mid-western part of the continent. After breeding, some wander well away from their normal range. This one showed up at a local sewage lagoon a short time ago. In a few weeks, the orangey brown colour will change to a pale gray.
