Double-banded Plover

Hi all,

The bird on the right with red stripe across the chest is a male Double-banded Plover in breeding plumage. And I suspect the other bird is the same, but I can't work out if it is either a Juv or Female.

Hi Gelmir,
Nice find.
I can't help, but I like to see new birds we don't get around here.
Gives me something to aim for.
Cheers kell

Not sure it is I'd go for one of the Stints, maybe a red-necked.

Thanks Kell, ed.

Glad you mentioned Red-necked Stint. I was leaning that way. I think it's an imm one that was born here last summer.

Thanks Denis. Interesting insight about the mutton birds. It's amazing how differently different birds will raise their young.
