One more Black-bellied Plover pic

As much as I would have liked, I did not find any American Golden Plovers in this flock. The Black-bellied Plovers have much larger bills and a lack of yellow tones (except on juveniles) that is evident in these pics.

This additional close-up photo shows the coloration on their feathers during Basic plumage pretty distinctly. The only thing I cannot provide (at least directly) is their very distinctive call but you can listen to it on the All About Birds website.
