Snowy Plover From A Distance.

I took this photo of a Western Snowy Plover from the top of the fore dune looking down on the beach yesterday morning when we were hiking the Carter Dunes Trail.  To appreciate this feat you have to realize that from our position on the dune it was impossible to see the lone bird on the beach with the naked eye because of the distance, it was only by searching with binoculars that I found it.  Ironically, he seems to have already spotted us because he appears to be looking directly at me with a "you looking at me?" look.


  1. Love your description, Jim. Have you started naming the individual Plovers yet?

  2. That's not a bad idea Larry, considering that we haven't seen that many it would be a plausible project.
