avocets in the grass

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)
