Abstract

Three six-egg clutches of the Mountain Plover (Charadrius montanus) represent the largest clutch size ever reported for this declining Great Plains shorebird. Clutch size in this species is normally three eggs, and six-egg clutches probably represent the laying of a second clutch in the nest by the same female.
