Interesting banded Snowy Plover


On May 20th I photographed a banded Snowy Plover on one of our SLO County beaches. I recently heard back from the bander. The bird is of special interest as it is the farthest north that a bird banded in Ensenada, Mexico, has been found. The bird was banded on July 24, 2019 at Bahia Todos Santos, Ensenada, Mexico, when it was about 3 days old. The bird was sighted at Coal Oil Point Preserve in Isla Vista about a month prior to my sighting. 

Happy birding!
