American Golden Plover


American Golden-Plover

Pluvialis dominica

This plover is uncommon in dry mudflats and in shortgrass fields; nests on relatively dry upland tundra. Usually found in small flocks, often mixed with Black-Bellied Plover. Best distinguished by dark tail and plain gray underwing. The American Golden-Plover has a long, circular migration route. In the fall it flies offshore from the East Coast of North America nonstop to South America.
