Curiosity Thy Name is a Pacific Golden Plover

I went to the marsh today to photograph the birds that call it their home. And this little guy comes running towards me on his twig-y legs, staring at me. I’d seen him once before hanging out by the taco truck that parks there. I wondered if  it was just trying to protect its territory from homo sapiens or  was it just curious, I’m not sure…but I had a great photo op!
