Semipalmated Plover on the Beaches of the Crystal Coast

The semipalmated Plover is a small bird somewhat resembling a Killdeer. Eating insects, worms and crustaceans, these birds seach for food along beaches and on tidal flats. These photos were made near Beaufort Inlet in late June, 2010.

The Semipalmated Plover resembles a small Killdeer, though it only has one neck ring.

These small shore birds nest on opne beaches and tidal flats in Canada and Alaska.

A low camera angle and slow, careful approach is key to making compelling photos of small shorebirds.
