3 Lifers in 15 minutes!

David and I went out to Jetty Park this morning after hearing reports of a Snowy Plover.  So, I expected to get that bird, but I wasn't expecting two other lifers today too! Details:

First lifer was the Snowy Plover.
Second lifer was the Piping Plover

Compare and contrast - specifically, check out
 the leg color. Snowy on left, Piping on right. 

And, my third lifer (thanks to David for pointing it out) was a Ghost crab. In all the time I've lived here, I've never seen one before!

Piping Plover just looking sweet.

Not to be outdone, the Snowy Plover looking adorable.
