Fun Fact Friday: The Semipalmated Plover is a small plover common throughout North America. In fact, during migration it is the most frequently seen plover throughout its range. The name semipalmated means partially webbed, which refers to the small webs found between their toes (a trait they share with another shorebird, the Semipalmated Sandpiper). Like many shorebirds, Semipalmated Plovers breed in North America's Arctic and sub-Arctic regions, from Nova Scotia to Alaska. However, while most shorebirds nest on the open tundra, these plovers prefer gravel bars along rivers and streams. There, the varied surroundings actually break up the bird's outline, making it inconspicuous despite its bold patterning. Semipalmated Plovers migrate across much of the continent, birds from each region using consistent seasonal migratory routes year after year. Some travel relatively short distances to winter along coastal areas of the southern US, while others fly as far as Tierra del Fuego in extreme southern South America. While foraging, these small plovers will swim short distances across small water channels; chicks will also follow their parents to small islets on shallow lakes–as long as they don't have to swim too far! #wetlandsinstitute #stoneharbornj #marshlife #shorebird #migration
