A small dark shorebird with a single band across its chest, the Semipalmated Plover is the most common plover seen on migration in most areas. Searches for prey visually. Runs several steps, stops, stares, and then pecks or quickly snatches at prey.
•Legs moderately long.
•Underparts white with one thick black or brown band on chest.
Similar to adult, but with duller markings and pale scaling on back.
