Craig Tooley photographed this Semipalmated Plover "taking a walk on the beach."
We see them in the spring and then in the autumn, during their migration. To hear the sound of this shorebird, here is the link to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Semipalmated_Plover/sounds
Thanks to Craig for allowing me to share his photo with you here. To see much more of Craig's nature photography, here is the link to his website: www.ruffimage.com
