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?
