Black-bellied Plover at Lakeshore State Park in Milwaukee County Wisconsin on September 6, 2021

Walking Lakeshore State Park I observed a Black-bellied Plover at the beach area. This juvenile bird gave nice views. It walked back and forth along the beach area getting things to eat. It was a gorgeous morning with sunny skies and pleasant temperatures. Images were taken on September 6, 2021.

    Your photos always shoe great detail that can be used as field marks and I appreciate that. Here you have captured many viewing angles on the young plover.

    Barefoot, long legs, grace and beauty – dancing in the water, vulnerable yet serene. Thanks for sharing, Jim!
