Just the one.

Just the one.
American avocets show up in our area each year. They aren't common but they aren't rare either.
A fellow birder called us to let us know there was just the one avocet about 3 miles outside of Rondeau Provincial Park.
The bird was exactly where she said it would be.
That is rare as birds have wings and know how to use them.

The avocet is a large, slim shorebird with a very slender upturned bill. In breeding plumage the head and neck have a pinkish tan or orangey buff colour.
