Plover Encounter

On Sunday morning I stood in a very cold north wind as several Piping Plovers worked over low tide sand flats seeking marine worms.  These birds are threatened with extinction and, while they are frequent visitors to Delaware, they are seldom seen close up.  I was fortunate to have a very close encounter with these distinctly colored tiny birds.  I have posted 6 photographs of the 300+ I took that morning because of the uniqueness of the encounter.
