Alpine Avocet

This is the first American Avocet I remember seeing in Alpine.

And here's my best photo of a Funereal Duskywing, taken at the oasis a few days ago.


  1. I guess his Gps system was off :)

  2. I think they regularly migrate through this area, just don't usually stop at small ponds; usually big lakes, if they stop at all. Last week my son saw one on a pond at Lajitas too. Mine didn't hang around more than an hour. Just probably nabbed a few small fishes, or whatever they eat, and was on his way
