Mountain Plover!


This Mountain Plover was reported by Gary Lester (nice work!) this morning from Clam Beach. We found him hanging out with a few Snowy Plovers. Zac was all worked up because this is a life bird for him (okay, for me too, but Zac's the one who keeps track of these things). I managed to get a few good shots of him, and got pretty sandy in the process, but we didn't bug the little guy for too long. This plover doesn't get over here too often - we were told the last report was 4 years ago.

Thanks Mike, a life bird is always fun - especially when they make for a nice photo op!
