Black-bellied Plover Pluvialis squatarola

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.

Description from Wikipedia

Charadriiformes is a diverse order of small to medium-large birds. It includes about 350 species and has members in all parts of the world. Most Charadriiformes live near water and eat invertebrates or other small animals; however, some are pelagic (sea birds), some occupy deserts and a few are found in thick forest.

No range data available.
