Pacific Golden Plover

Pacific Golden Plover.

I have all I need
Not a feather too many
Nor one too few


A medium-sized plover with short dark bill and long dark legs. Adults in breeding plumage have black running from the face down the throat and belly to the underparts and flanks, with the crown, nape, and upper parts densely spangled with gold, black and white. Non-breeding birds have a buff-apricot wash with dark speckling on the breast and dark patches in front of the eyes and an ear patch. ~ Bernard
