April 4, 2017 – African Three-banded Plover (Charadrius tricollaris)

Found in parts of central and southern Africa, these plovers were previously lumped together with the Madagascar Three-banded Plover as a single species. They eat insects and their larvae, crustaceans, small mollusks, and worms, foraging near the edge of the water alone, in pairs, or in small flocks. Pairs nest along the shore in scrapes in sand, dry mud, gravel, or rocks.
