The Amazing Sand Plover

Is now the peak of migratory season for shore birds. In order to avoid the cold winter, these birds travel thousand of miles away from home and will spend the next few months here before return to their home country for breeding next spring.

Saw this Lesser Sand Plover (Charadrius mongolus) born with just one leg landed safely! Despite the challenges, she made it. What an amazing bird!!
