Description

Here are two Black-bellied Plovers from a flock of about two dozen that were feeding and perching on rocks along the edge of Port Townsend Bay. They have just returned from the farthest north of Alaska and Canada, and some males even still show the remnants of their breeding plumage-- the black bellies. Not these two.
