Charadrius pecuarius
Home Alphabetical Maps Taxonomic Links/Resources

Most of the slideshow images of Kittlitz's plover were made while the birds were foraging at the edge of Lake Magadi in Ngorongoro Crater (click image to see slideshow). Most are in breeding plumage with the characteristic dark black head markings which are replaced in non-breeding season with sepia color. The flock in flight was seen at Lake Manyara (3-12), courtesy of Paul Oliver. The 3rd row bird was seen on the Laikipia Plateau (Kenya, 2-12) and the 4th row, in the Serengeti (2-17), both courtesy of Karine Van der Vurst. The 2nd row photo and the nest were at Ndutu (5-15), courtesy of Siegfried Woldhek. Both lower non-breeding birds were seen at Ndutu (5-07).
