American Avocet on Eggs at Sunset

Here’s a look back…from June 2014. I went to Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge in Northern Utah, looking for shorebirds. What I found at the end of the tour drive was this American Avocet at sunset, sitting on eggs on a nest. This image won in a local great salt lake bird contest in 2015. It doesn’t feel like it was that long ago that I photographed this scene.¬†American Avocets are one of my favorite Shorebirds.
