I went this morning. No avocets. No spoonbill.

 

But I did enjoy a flyover of Caspian terns and a loafing and feeding flock of 13 Forster’s terns and one yellow-crowned night-heron.

 

Counting 16+ great egrets was a chore, but one snowy was present, and many little blue herons.

 

Forty-eight species out in the open was nice. A beautiful day for birding.

Steve Dilks went to look for the avocets I saw at the east end of Pool 13 on Friday. He arrived at the location at 3 pm today. No avocets there, but instead he found a Roseate Spoonbill. He said it was light pink. What a consolation prize!
