Two former exchange students from Mexico, sponsered in part by Linking, decided to go find the avocet named Simba.  It has a satellite transmitter and is wintering for the second year in a row in Marismas Nacionales, Mexico. Simba was originally banded at the Bear River Refuge on June 5, 2014 as part of the American Avocet Migration Project.  He was with a flock of avocets in virtually the same wetland complex he was in last year.  Check out the photos below.
