Three-banded Plover

Three-banded Plover: Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda, August 2022 — This is just a grab shot of one of a small group of plovers which were running across the road behind our vehicle on one of the game-drives in the northern sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park. I am not sure what we called it at the time, but it is a Three-banded Plover, one of the more common and widespread plovers in Uganda and all of East Africa. It is oddly named in that it does not actually have three bands in the usual sense…unless you are counting the white background as three white bands??? This bird is also odd in that it was not nearer the water…but there were quite a few other “shore” birds right along that stretch of road. Sony Rx10iv at 526mm equivalent (cropped and enlarged considerably). Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Pixelmator Photo and Apple Photos. ISO 100 @ f4 @ 1/1000th.
