Today I went to Winfield Lock & Dam to find the American Avocet was 
still there (as well as many Wilson's Snipe, Least Sandpipers and more). 
Here's a link to a little video I digiscoped of this new snow bird for 
any who might enjoy it.  At B.K. Leach I had my first ever chance to 
take close-up photos of Short-eared Owls (one was perched only ten feet 
from me).  I wanted to share a little slide show of my pics.
