Off duty

I caught sight of this Piping Plover late in the afternoon as she(?) stretched her legs and went off to feed in the surf; she'd just been relieved of nest-sitting duties by her mate. She preened her feathers some, stretched her wings and disappeared into the crowd of sun-worshipers.

Her eggs are expected to hatch in about 14 days!

Nice plover shot! I hope she'll has young to care for.

Back to the nest, Plover!

Great shot! The plover is so cute!
