Hammonasett-May-2010
This probably our most familiar shorebird. Not only is it abundant and conspicuous, but its loud call compels attention. When the nest is approached, the adult feigns injury, hobbling along with wings dragging as if badly wounded. This behavior often succeeds in luring a predators away from the eggs or youngs; the bird then "recovers" and flies off calling loudly.
Nesting: 4 pale buff, spotted eggs in a slight depression or scrape sparsely lined with grass on bare ground.
On this photo you may see the eggs, among the same looking stones around.
