Black-fronted Dotterel

Here the dotterel is doing its best to lead me away from the nest by imitating an injured bird. It's checking over its shoulder to see if I'm following. Which of course I obliged.

 

Scientific name: Elseyornis (Charadrious) melanops

Sex: Unknown

Location: Boat Harbour, Sydney, Australia.
