Black Bellied Plover – Winter Plumage

While on my paddle the other morning I spied a plover searching the mouth of Deep Creek for a morning snack. I made a slow, drifting approach to see if I could get a few photos. As I got nearer I could see that it was a Black Bellied Plover, still in its winter plumage. It didn’t seem to mind my presence and I was able to get a few photos of this little bird as it worked the shoreline hunting for a few tasty morsels.

The Rachel Carson Estuarine Reserve is a wonderful location for viewing shorebirds.
