Week #42 challenge is Birds you have seen in the past two weeks. We spent the whole day looking for the American Flamingo with NO SUCCESS. The bird had been seen for 4 days straight prior to our trip.
A rare bird is considered a species of bird that is almost never seen in an area to which it normally exists in habitat or migration.

Waders are found all over the world on every continent except Antarctica. Identifying waders is pretty easy even for the person who isn’t a birder. Loosely classified are Cranes, Egrets, Herons, Ibises, Rails, Spoonbills, Storks, Flamingos and other species.
