American Plover

While helping with a bird survey I got to see an American Plover. This bird began acting erratically as we were hiking, and we realized we were near its nest! After making an alarm call at us while guarding the nest, it finally decided to try to lead us away while acting like its wing was injured. We carefully walked through the area to make sure we didn’t step on any eggs. After finding the nest, which blended in very well with its surroundings, we left the area.
