  1. Hi... I know a good place to see Black-necked Stilts and American Avocets. It's called Salt Plains National Wildlife Refuge. You can also see the rare Snowy Plover (which I haven't seen before there).

    In fact, here's a list:
    http://www.fws.gov/southwest/refuges/oklahoma/saltplains/birds.html

    It's just a suggestion... you could go to Texas or Costa Rica.


    Thanks from an Okie,

  3. Hi Michelle. Thanks for the tip. However on this trip we will not be touching down in Oklahoma, but we should see all those species in FL and CA with any luck. Thanks for thinking of us. Cheers. Rick and Elis.

  4. Sure thing. You're welcome. You're always welcome to my state. Florida is cool too!
