Semipalmated plover

Recommended Posts

Saw a flock of semipalmated plovers in South Carolina this weekend. Shouldn't they be in Canada for the breeding season or have some of the young already come South. Thanks in advance.

It is getting real late to be heading up to the Arctic. There are a good amount of recent reports along the Carolina coast around this time, so I guess some might over summer. Or it could be late migrants coming up from Argentina.

Adults are the first shorebirds to leave the breeding grounds in most species, particularly adult females.
