For the second time in just over a week, I found a Black-bellied Plover at the flooded fields by Green Pond. I got this heavily-cropped photo of the bird, which still hasn't acquired its breeding plumage.

My afternoon stop at the flooded fields by Green Pond produced nine Black-bellied Plovers. I got a photo of five of them in the short time before a group of gulls dropped in and apparently scared them off to the northwest.

I was not only glad to find a Wilson's Phalarope this afternoon at the flooded fields by Green Pond but was thrilled to get a nice photo of it.
