Conejohela Flats Avocets

After an early morning of looking for warblers, I got an email about two American Avocets that were hanging out on Avocet Point at Conejohela Flats. After several years of checking out the flats regularly, I finally get to see an avocet at Avocet Point, fitting I guess. I didn’t have time to kayak out so I had to be content with viewing it from the boat launch which is about 2500 ft away from the spot where the birds were. Needless to say, with the long distance and heat distortion, I wasn’t able to get very good shots.
