Black-bellied Plover?

Recommended Posts

Nice picture!

Yes, this is an adult Black-bellied Plover probably molting into its winter plumage. Note the heavy body, thick neck, and stubby bill.

Thanks,

Uncharacteristically, it was right next to the road, sitting in the grass when I first saw it. I thought it might be injured. The grassy area is near the bay and the BBPLs I see there are usually out on a sandbar in the bay. I've never gotten this close to one before.
