Disappearing Salton Sea
An American coot runs across the surface of the Salton Sea before taking flight near Niland, Calif., April 29, 2015. Located on what is called the "Pacific flyway," heavy migrations of waterfowl, marsh and seabirds take advantage of the Salton Sea during spring and fall. For them, the lake is a desert oasis from vast stretches of rock and sand. (AP Photo/Gregory Bull)
