Black-bellied Plover

Pluvialis squatarola


Nests in Arctic lowlands on dry tundra. Winters on coastal beaches and estuaries. May use flooded pasture and agricultural land


There were some of these mixed in with a larger group of Dunlins and Least Sandpipers, and while those guys let me get relatively close to take some pictures, These guys were very wary and would run a distance away every time I got a little closer. They are in the nonbreeding plumage.

Winters in Florida - that's not a bad idea. A wonderful spotting, Livan. Great photos too.
