Semipalmated Plover

Charadrius semipalmatus


Breeds near ponds, rivers, or estuaries on pebbles, gravel, peat, tundra heath, or sand in subarctic and arctic environments. Migration and the nonbreeding season, on mudflats and muddy margins of many kinds (in freshwater, brackish, and saltwater environments). They also feed in agricultural fields both wet and dry, on sandy beaches, and sometimes on stony beaches.


There was a small flock hanging out in the middle of an empty parking lot.
