The Punta Chame Avocet

Was seen this morning at 9 am. Drive out towards Punta Chame for 12.8 km and walk the dirt road to the right towards the abandoned shrimp ponds. The avocet was in the flock of stilts on the pond to the right. Seen by Delicia, Pedro, Camilo and Darién Montañez.
Then at noon Camilo and Darién showed the place to George Angehr in exchange for a ride back to the city. The bird was still on the same pond, but flew back to the far end of the pond. The pond also had a big raft of Blue-winged Teal, a few Southern Lapwings, and a Glossy Ibis.
