Snowy Plover photo gallery

I've added 18 photos of today's Snowy Plover to my Snowy Plover Photo Gallery. Thanks ever so much to Shawn Zierman for alerting us all to this splendid bird, and to Mike Hendrickson for calling my house yesterday to make sure I knew about it--I'd been gone to the Twin Cities all day and may not have had a chance to check the Minnesota birding listservs if I didn't know about it. And a special thanks to Harold Nordin for looking beyond the little flock of Monarch butterflies on the beach that were gathered like a flock of shorebirds to find the plover for the final bird of this year's Spring Warbler Walks.
