Postcard from the beach – A “Hoodie”

Australian Birds

Hooded Plover, Stokes Beach, Australia.

I photographed this wonderful little fella on a recent trip to Kangaroo Island, just off Australia’s southern coastline.

This small bird, affectionally referred to as a “Hoodie”, is on the endangered list with numbers estimated at around 200 on the island…

    A beautiful bird, and some intense coloring around eye and on the beak. Hope this species can be saved.

      Quite a feature the ring around the eye…they still number okay, but like many species the threat is there.

      As soon as I saw your comment I heard that Bee Gees song flash through my mind…Stayin Alive, Stayin Alive…perhaps?
