KITTLITZ'S PLOVER BY ELEPHANT DUNG, IMBABALA PRIVATE CONCESSION, ZIMBABWE
We can ID this bird as Kittlitz's Plover by its cinnamon colored underparts and by the black line on the forehead that extends behind the eye onto the nape. The pile to the left of the bird is elephant dung. Some birds and other animals eat the undigested food contained in the elephant dung.
Kittlitz's Plover is a new species to our Photographic Life List, which now stands at 381.
