I can understand the avocet excitement. In July 2014 I ran into Chris Letts at 
Croton Point swimming beach. I was sitting on bench w morning coffee. He walked 
down to shoreline and waved me down — American Avocet. Fortunately another CPP 
regular was there Jim Bourdan who got photo — to date it’s the last avocet 
reported in Westchester.  Certainly my only avocet in-County. Because of tide 
it lasted perhaps an hour after Chris found it. Here’s the 7/14/14 ebird report

at the sandy beach built up by the breach caused by our last hurricane. This 
evening, upon reading the posts of Chris Gangemi and Anthony Collerton, I see 
we almost assuredly had 2 of this species here on the East End Thursday !

I first saw this species on 6/17/75 in Montana, which was followed by my first 
in NYS on 8/31/78 at JBWR, and then by my first in Nassau County on 9/24/04, at 
the Oceanside Marsh. Therefore, today's sighting was quite special for me, 
being my very first AMAV in Suffolk County...my home county !

Cheers,
Bob
