During Snowy Plover surveys, I saw a Black-bellied Plover in breeding plumage. That was incredible, I couldn't tell if it was eating alkali flies, or staring at its reflection in the shallow flood (Zone 2). Eleven White-faced Ibises (Ibii?) landed near me and preened. There were gobs of Snowy Plovers, but not quite as many as in 2004.
