Two Semipalmated Shorebirds at Maplewood

While checking out the mudflats at Maplewood Conservation Area on September 4th I observed a Semipalmated Plover and a juvenile Semipalmated Sandpiper foraging at the water’s edge.

On several occasions the juvenile Semipalmated Sandpiper got a little to close to the plover and it briefly chased the sandpiper away while giving an alarm call.
