While I see avocets in the county most years, I've never had one away from the lakefront before. Tim found a small flock at a pristine little prairie pothole ... errr a flooded vacant lot in Benton Harbor this afternoon.
The cinnamon heads of breeding plumage did not disappoint.
There were 7 birds total (shot here through the windshield)
Finally a White-throated Sparrow pic from this morning (because what else are you going to photograph when all the warblers are still in southern Ohio)
