Breach Inlet, Charleston Co, SC.
Loved getting to see all the shorebirds on the coast. There are some sandpipers and other shore birds that you can find in Austin, but the number and variety on the coast is really wonderful.
The Grey Plover (Pluvialis squatarola), known as the Black-bellied Plover in North America, is a medium-sized plover breeding in arctic regions. It is a long-distance migrant, with a nearly worldwide coastal distribution when not breeding.
