American Golden Plover

American Golden Plover

Pluvialis dominica

View in taxonomic table

This Plover is a migrant that breeds in the Northern Hemisphere and comes to South America in our spring/summer.  We spotted this bird in cattle fields near to our reserve in November 2012 and were able to take a photo of it although the quality is poor.

It measures about 22cm, has white streaked underparts and a white supercilium.  Back and wings are dark brown with some spotting and a dark cap.  We only see the non-breeding plumage here in Argentina.
