One of many shorebirds migrating along New Jersey coast is a Semipalmated Plover (Charadrius semipalmatus). It is a small dark shorebird with a single dark band across its chest often seen on beaches, tidal flats and fields feeding on insects and worms.

This photograph was taken in Sandy Hook Gateway National Recreaction Area, Monmouth County, New Jersey:
