...and do it with friends!
Black-bellied Plovers (Pluvialis squatarola) and Short-billed Dowitchers (Limnodromus griseus) brace themselves against 20 knot winds and blowing sand at Doran Beach on 13 September 2013. [The plovers are in the center and at the far left; the dowitchers are in the foreground.]
Black-bellied Plovers are gray or silver in non-breeding plumage (see below). The individual in the center of the picture above is in transition.
