American/Pacific Golden Plover

Recommended Posts

Hello all! I recently saw this plover, and I believe it to be a potential American Golden Plover. I have provided photos and details on this ebird checklist:

The bird was seen on Sunday, October 21, 2018, at the Waiau District park in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Thanks in advance!

I used Merlin to ID and it said Pacific. Photo Sleuth got 89% American, but also partially Pacific. I think it looks more like a Pacific, taking range into account, but maybe moving it back to the top will get more responses.

I now agree with Pacific, as the primaries don't extend as far as they would in an American golden plover. Thanks for your input!
