Look at all that jewelry the piping plover has on.
They are so tiny.
This one only has one anklet on. He looks sleepy. It was early in the morning.
This one has no jewelry on.
This one is a Wilson’s plover.

It was a quiet morning at Fort Desoto in early September. Not much on the beach but I was excited to see several piping plovers. We don’t see them here often. They must be migrating through. It was a 4 plover morning: Wilson’s, piping, semiplamated and black bellied. Now if only I had seen a snowy. I haven’t seen one there in years.
