Piping Plover With Breakfast

Sunday, May 28, 2023,

This is a Piping Plover that I spotted between Point Lookout and Nickerson Beach. It’s got some sort of tasty tidbit in its bill. I don’t know what it is, but it appears to have wings. Piping Plovers can be difficult to find, and not just because they are endangered. These little birds blend in so well with their surroundings that they can seem almost invisible till they start moving. Check out the pic below. It’s the same photo as the one above, except that I didn’t crop it as closely. Kind of hard to spot the little, right?  JK
