Egyptian Plover

Pluvianus aegyptus


Digging through old photos of my Tulsa Zoo trip some time ago and finding photos I never uploaded, this is an egyptian plover, an animal sometimes called the "crocodile bird" because of its supposed symbiotic relationship with nile crocodiles.


Found all over Egypt and Sub Saharan Africa.
