Subject:      Sand-plover in Virginia
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="US-ASCII"

A sand-plover, most likely greater, appeared in Virginia 2 days ago near Staunton, about 40 minutes west of Charlottesville (where I live). It was in a muddy pond behind this Day's Inn motel: Days Inn Business Place Hotel 273 Bells Ln # D Staunton, VA 24401-9013

Here's a link to images:

I saw it yesterday, along with a lot of other people. Debate still underway about whether it is a lesser or greater sand-plover. Some people heard its flight song (I didn't). Does anyone on this list know where there are online recordings of the two species?

Best wishes, Pete Myers
