Avocet - Richard Seeley Photography

Aerial Avocet

We had no plans to stop. This wildlife management area was not on our agenda. But as we drove by at 70 miles an hour the swarming birds caught our eye. We did a U-turn, parked the car and hiked out to the shoreline where we shot stilts, pelicans, gulls and avocets for the next hour. Freezeout Lake Wildlife Mgmt Area, Choteau, Montana
