Forbes's Plover

Charadrius forbesi (Shelley, 1883)

The Forbes’s Plover or Forbes’s Banded Plover (Charadrius forbesi) is a small wader. This plover is resident in much of west Africa, mainly on inland rivers, pools and lakes. Its nest is a scrape lined with small pebbles in rocky uplands. After breeding in the wet season, this bird moves to open grasslands, including airfields and golf courses, in the dry season. It is sometimes seen at pools or reservoirs. Source: Wikipedia
