1106 Pacific Golden Plover (Kolea)


Ala Moana Beach Park
Honolulu, Hawaii
January 28, 2014

This was one of the highlights of this trip to Hawaii and a lifer sighting for me. The Kolea is an Artic Tundra breeder, but winters in warm climates like south Asia, Australia, Hawaii and even California. This is a set of 3 photos taken at Ala Moana. I’ll be posting a set of 4 that were taken in Waimanalo with outstretched wings that really show the golden color of this bird. I was seeing these birds almost every where I went.
