This evening I found a lone American Avocet at the Atwater sewage ponds.  
There are three ponds, and it was on the west shore of the pond furthest 
south and west.  To access the ponds, take the Kandi-Meeker Rd south from 
US 12 and go about a half mile.  The entrance will be on the west side of the 
road.  Note that the gate is only open to vehicles on Mondays, Wednesdays, 
and Saturdays.  I imagine you could walk to the ponds on the other days, but 
it will just be a bit more of a hike. 

Other birds seen at the ponds:
10 Bonaparte's Gulls
2 Trumpeter Swans
Lesser Yellowlegs
Least Sandpipers
Wood Ducks
Blue-winged Teal
Ring-necked Ducks
Lesser Scaup
Ring-billed Gulls
Canada Geese
