28 seen together where this photo was taken, then many more seen as we walked back to the east. Likely at least 60 snowy plovers on a miles stretch of beach. Several seen foraging at dusk at the upper reach of the waves, apparently pursuing invertebrates that were active on freshly washed up algae.
10 on shore near Bull's Point. Birds were about 100 feet away. Photo taken by holding up iPhone to spotting scope.
Epic change from plasmodium to fruitbody.
