American Avocet

(click on image for larger version)

An AMERICAN AVOCET was found by a couple of birders at Nine Springs in Madison this morning. A few other birders were already there when we arrived and the avocet was quickly located at the third pond. It was a bit distant for high-quality digiscoping but I still managed to pull off a fairly decent shot considering the distance and mirage distortion.
