Snowy Plover Chick

Photograph by Lil Judd, My Shot

This is a snowy plover chick. How small this little bird is almost impossible to explain. All I could think of was that I was looking for something the size of two cotton balls with toothpicks for legs. They are that tiny. They are also well camouflaged against the sand, and they move in spurts, very fast.
