Bird Pic Of The Week

Semipalmated Plover

(Charadrius semipalmatus)

Where: Henlopen Acres, DE • Gordon's Pond

Notes: There is something that is just "cute" about plovers. Their large eye and especially round head give them that Disney-Bambi look. This little bird of less than six inches long, resembles a miniature Killdeer but is much smaller and has only one belly band. The term "semipalmated" refers to its partly webbed feet. This bird was running around on the mud flats of a dried up pond in search of food. Most plovers have a distinct pattern of movement. They go from a still stance into a sprint for a few feet. Then when they stop and go right back into that upright pose. This behavior is repeated over and over. This can help to identify them in a group of shorebirds, even from a great distance.
