Playero coleador [Spotted Sandpiper] (Actitis macularia) (Plumaje período reproductivo [Breeding plumage])

Lugar: Desembocadura del río Capaya, Barlovento, Centro norte de Venezuela. Este ejemplar muestra ya el plumaje del verano boreal que le da su nombres en inglés y científico. Ello quiere decir que está preparándose para emigrar a los lugares del hemisferio norte donde anida (noten lo gordito que se ha puesto).

 

Place: Capaya River mouth, Barlovento, north centre Venezuela. This individual already shows the spotted breeding plumage that give them its English and scientific name. That means that it is preparing itself to migrate to the northern grounds where they breed (note how fatty has become it).
