Tapping Toes Piping Plover

Little speedy birds. They run full speed over the sand.

They also have an interesting hunting method. Tapping toes. Below this plover is tapping on the wet sand.

Tiny worms will move just under the surface when they hear this. Very funny to watch a little bird scurry, stop, and tap the sand. All in full ahead speed.

  1. So cute… the area I am at for the weekend has trails to the beach that are seasonally closed to protect the snowy plover during breeding.. but I haven’t seen any this weekend.
