A very pleasant surprise. I have not seen any Avocet since midsummer. I guess they have been hiding out in the far marshes we missed.
This flock pretty much came out of nowhere. It helped they made a few quick short turns before giving me the fly by.
These birds are fast and change direction instantly.
Getting an Avocet in flight, here a small flock, is always fun. Even better since I’m sure this is the last chance until next spring.
