America Avocet – Bear River National Wildlife Refuge: Avocets are plentiful at Bear River NWR. Some Avocets are already on eggs, while other are still staking out nesting territories. This Avocet, one of a pair, must have been staking out its nest site. This bird and its mate were incredibility tame and walked right up to me. I took this particular image as the bird fed in a flooded field. I also did a video of this bird and will post it soon. More images to come! I will make another post when I get another connection.
