Semipalmated Plover

Interesting Information

  • The term “semipalmated” refers to its partly webbed feet.
  • It has been seen swimming short distances across small water channels during foraging while on migration. Chicks also swim short distances to follow parents to small islets on shallow lakes.

Happy Shorebirding!
