The final waves of northbound migrating shorebirds are making their way back to their arctic breeding grounds. This male Black-bellied Plover in full breeding plumage was observed this past weekend feeding on the sandflats at Black Beach in West Falmouth. This distinctive shorebird has a whitish crown, a black face, chin, throat and black underparts along with checkered black and white upperparts. They are known for a run and stop foraging style on the sandflats.
