Subject: Juniata County - American Avocet
hello all, shortly before lunch today I got a call from a young amish
birder who was seeing an American Avocet on Metz Rd near
Thompsontown/East Salem area

Got there as soon as we could but a neighbors dog chased it off and it
hasn't been refound yet.

Not an ideal spot for one at all, it was seen in freshly mowed fields
and a good bit of agriculture activity was going on while we were there.

The word has been shared among local birders to hopefully find it again

That is a county first record.
