Two weeks ago I returned from a birding trip to Colombia where on May 30th we (a party of three and our guide) visited the saltmarshes and mangroves of Isla Salamanca on the Caribbean coast. On one of the lagoons there we saw a first summer (2nd cy) American Avocet. Our guide (Pablo Flores) had never seen this bird in Colombia and didn't have any knowledge of this species being recorded in Colombia (it was even a lifer for him).
Is there anyone here who has any information about sightings of this species in Colombia? Is there any committee where such a sighting should be reported?
Participants in the birding trip:
Filip Beeldens (Belgium)
Regis Nossent (Belgium)
Filip Collet (Belgium)
Pablo Flores (Colombia, guide)
Thanks in advance,
