May 29, 2018 - Semipalmated Plover (Charadrius semipalmatus)

Breeding in northern Canada and Alaska, these plovers migrate through most of North America to the southern coasts of the United States and the coasts of Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America, and South America. They feed on aquatic and terrestrial invertebrates, running along the ground and stopping suddenly to peck at their prey. Nesting on the ground in shallow scrapes, usually on gravel or sand, both parents incubate the eggs and care for the chicks.
