Right after dinner tonight I had this strong urge to go to the beach and see what the little Snowy Plovers have been up to.
It didn't take me long to find them - my first sighting was a Snowy incubating 3 eggs
|Not far from there a male Snowy Plover was busy making more scratches with the hopes of alluring a female that was nearby - after scratching several 'bowls', the female came closer and....|
|as you guessed it, they started mating for what must have taken an entire minute...|
|in the mean time the sun is setting in the horizon and we have elated birds who can barely contain themselves - I think they were thinking about lighting up a cigarette.|
|Sunset love at its best!|
