106Re: Continuing USTP Avocets
- May 29, 2001Geoff & Cheryl Heineken & Vishnu easily located the pair of American Avocets
on the north shore of the north USTP pond and observed and photographed them
from 2:30 - 4:00pm today, Tuesday 5/29. No longer a bit shy the pair
performed for us the act for which their beautiful breeding plumage was
intended to inspire.
The 7 white faced ibis seen earlier in the day by Matthew Mattiessen
unfortunately did not re-appear. Umpteen tiny mallards continue to follow
their mothers around in the far eastern part of this north pond.
