The American avocets were mostly paired up along the stretch of shoreline along Frank Lake when I went there last night. Here one avocet chased off another couple while the mate. Apparently defending territory they had claimed at some point.

That is beautiful. I never heard of those birds, but the way you caught them was great. Keep the good work up.
