American Golden-Plover (Pluvialis dominica) - 10Oct2017 and 01Oct2018

The daintier and more elegant of the two Pluvialis we get in NC, the American Golden-Plover is also the more rare.  Mostly they can be found in flooded fields during migration, but every so often we get them on the beach.

This one is from Fort Fisher in Oct 2017.


Here is one in more typical habitat at the Cedar Island Ferry in Oct 2018.
