Crab plover

Crab Plover | Mar' 14 | Pulicat, Tamilnadu, India |

 

A unique member of the #wader family. Although named as #plover some consider these to be closely related to #Gulls (a.k.a #seabirds) and some say these are related to pratincoles.

 

Either way this Crab Plover was a very rare sighting that we had after close to a decade in our part of the world
