Plover

The black winged plover, or lapwing.

We don’t see these fellows all that often, and I struggled to get a picture of this pair. We were taking a walk on the hillside on a hot spring afternoon, and waiting for the weather to cool off before trying for some Trout at the evening rise on a nearby stillwater.

The birds kept taking off, circling, and landing between us and the sun, and seldom close enough for me to get a clear picture.
