Feathers on Friday

Semipalmated Plover

 Happy Friday! I saw a lot of these little guys on the beach during our recent trip to Gulf Coast of Florida.  It looks like they only have one leg but I guess this is a common behavior.  This shot was taken early in the morning right after sunrise.  They keep one leg up as a way to conserve heat.

Have a great weekend and happy birding!  I will be checking out some Bald Eagle nests in the area this weekend.  Stay tune for more details on that.  Don't forget to follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook.


  1. Semipalmated Plovers are one of my favourites -- they are also so cooperative for photos. Happy Friday!

    1. They are very cooperative unless my one year old is trying to chase them across the beach!
