Mountain Plover

The Mountain Plover (Charadrius montanus) is unlike most plovers, usually not found near bodies of water or even on wet soil; it prefers dry habitat with short grass and bare ground. It breeds in the high plains of North America from extreme southeastern Alberta and southwestern Saskatchewan to northern New Mexico and the Texas panhandle, as well as an isolated site in the Davis Mountains of West Texas. About 85 percent of the population winters in the San Joaquin and Imperial Valleys in California. Its winter range also extends along the U.S.-Mexican border, more extensively on the Mexican side.
