Snowy Plover At A Bird Feeder?

One of the banders brought in an old newspaper from Wisconsin that has one heck of a front page story.  Check it out (and be sure to read the caption): oops

Who knew so many of us had them coming to our feeder already!

Since the photo was taken at Bong State Recreation Area, I guess we can understand how the misidentification happened (giggle).  For readers who are not familiar with a snowy plover, this is what one looks like the above bird is a male house's understandable, they look so similar (not).


The article continues inside the paper...causing teenagers across the country to giggle at wacky birders.  What kind of nature programs would be planned at Bong?  I'm not sure, but they better make sure to have plenty of snacks.
