Due to the scarce records of Snowy Plover along the Caribbean coasts of Colombia, it had not been thought to breed there. However, during fieldwork in the Los Flamencos Fauna and Flora Sanctuary near Riohacha, La Guajira, evidence of breeding Snowy Plovers was collected, which extends the known breeding range of C. n. nivosus west into Colombia.
