Black-billed Plover

Pluvialis squatarola


Breed in the northernmost reaches of North America and Eurasia, in dry heath tundra as well as wet tundra. Migrants in the continent’s interior favor lowlands over mountains and may stop over in harvested agricultural fields (both wet and flooded), sod farms, sporting fields, wet prairies, and the muddy or gravelly edges of lakes, ponds, and rivers. Wintering birds use tidal creeks, estuaries, lagoons, and shorelines, where they feed on mudflats and beaches.
