Is Avocet Right For You?

Seasonal Birding Disorder (SBD) is a serious ailment that affects thousands. If you are a North American birder who suffers from ennui, irritability, or depression during the summer birding doldrums, you are not alone. And there is a solution.

Try Avocet. Avocet is easy to take—only a few doses a week have been shown to alleviate the major symptoms of SBD:

Avocet is most effective when taken with water.

Avocet should not be taken by those with chronic vision problems, or people suffering from liver disease or high blood pressure. Avocet is not for everyone, including birders who've just returned from New Guinea, Costa Rica, or Alaska. Side effects may include sunburn, dry mouth, and increased hormonal activity.

Prolonged or excessive use of Avocet may result in drowsiness or a return of SBD symptoms:

If you experience drowsiness or other SBD symptoms while taking Avocet, stop immediately and contact your mental health professional.

Avocet is available without prescription and is not covered by most insurance plans. If you suffer from SBD, ask yourself: is Avocet right for you?

Great photos! I have only seen one avocet so far this year, unfortunately. They don't seem very common in New Jersey.

Thanks! Avocets are so common in Southern California that I tend to take them for granted--but they're a lot of fun to watch.

Hi Bennet and Bob and Cynthia,

Thanks for your kind words! Any day birding can be interesting, if you look hard enough!
