Ro~What a wonderful photo! I love the blue & brown and the reflection, as well as the plover as subject matter. The banding adds just a touch of color. V/F

Thanks Sue. I believe they are on the endangered list. That is why I got so excited and reported the banded birds I found.

Piping Plover has now been identified: Hi Roena, Thanks so much for the report and the photos! The PIPL in the last photo has a green flag (band with tab sticking out) on the upper left leg. This signifies that it was banded by Virginia Tech. The PIPL that you observed was banded as an adult on Lewis and Clark Lake, near Yankton SD during the summer of 2010 and back to Lewis and Clark Lake to breed in 2011 as well. Thanks again and please let me know if you have any other questions. Kelsi Hunt
