Semipalmated Plover (Charadrius semipalmatus) with a little worm in his beak.

Done at Presqui'lle Provincial Park

A small dark shorebird with a single band across its chest, the Semipalmated Plover is the most common plover seen on migration in most areas.

The Semipalmated Plover is among the few plovers whose numbers are apparently increasing, perhaps owing to its versatility in food and habitat choice, its wide-spread coastal winter distribution, or its habitat expansion in the sub-Arctic as a result of disturbance by both humans and arctic geese.

Hi Mario,
Your photo is awesome considering how fast this birds move, I don't understand why it is SO underrated.
Excellent sharpness, colors and light, well done.
