The Incredible Six-Legged Plover!


We spotted this unusual Snowy Plover at Bolsa Chica last weekend. It, along with several other Snowys and nesting Least Tern families, were in the fenced-off area by the inland end of the footbridge.

I always suspected that no good would come from birds breeding in an abandoned oil field.

Okay, here's what was really going on...
