Pied Avocet
A rather harried flock of Pied Avocet fly over the defunct wetland at Cape Nanhui, early November. The avocets were often interrupting their feeding and resting to make a circular flight before settling back down at more or less the same location. Though habitat continues to decline, Pied Avocet remains a common winter visitor and passage migrant in Shanghai. (Craig Brelsford)
