Plover on Connecticut shore

Tough Little Plovers

I went down state (Connecticut) to the shore. Needed a change of scenery and different places to photograph. With luck a little less snow.

Walking the beach I found a favorite, Plovers.

These small birds live on the jetties and rocks. The snow and ice cover these rocks, not to mention the freezing water,  yet they hide in there somehow.IMG_5925I watched them run up and down the beach chasing waves. Each time a wave goes out they all charge into the surf to grab what ever they might find.

As soon as the next wave starts to come in they all turn and run a few feet back up the shore. Wait, then run back in the water again.

Back and forth until they tire or have enough food. Fun to watch.
