Description

Juv coloration. Tame. Bad pic. Was resting for several minutes. Then it started diving. It left line of air bubbles which was nice for keeping track of where it would surface next
14, 35, 24, 11 sec dives. Feeding under rocks. Uses wings and feet to swim. Mostly feet. Feeding right along edge so u can clearly watch it feeding. Way cool!! Need to go get my videocam

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.
