Ringed Plover

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Aegialitis hiaticola, the Ringed Plover, Sand-Lark, or Stone-runner, mistakenly called the “Ring-Dotterel” which is common on the British coasts and even inland, extends from Smith’s Sound eastward to Bering Strait, and migrates to South Africa, North India, or accidentally, Australia. It breeds as far south as the Atlantic Islands, North Africa, and Turkestan. The plumage is light brown, with white forehead, post-ocular streak, upper neck, alar bar, outer rectrices, and under surface; the crown, lores, cheeks, and a collar-broader in front-being black. The young lack the black crown.” A. H. Evans, 1900
