Wilson's Plover

The Wilson's Plover is restricted to southeastern coastal areas of the United States, Mexico, and Central America. We found several on Sanibel Island in late February 2010. This date was early for this species, a migrant from the south. Wilson's Plovers suffer from beach development and disturbance. This species is recognized by its short, thick, black bill.
