Bird Pic Of The Week

Pacific Golden Plover (Kolea)

(Pluvialis fulva)

Where: Oahu, HI • Honolulu's Kapiolani Park

Notes: The Hawaiian Islands are a regular wintering ground of this golden gem of a sandpiper. Though this time of year it lacks the striking black belly of its breeding plumage, the rich golden feathers on its back, make it a handsome bird. Winter migration brings a large number of birds to a relatively small island area. Migration to Hawaii involves a long, nonstop, transoceanic flight. The Pacific Golden-Plover breeds from the Yamal Peninsula, Russia, to western Alaska and winters over a wide range from coastal California and the Pacific islands to Australia, southeast Asia, and northeast Africa. These birds are commonly seen on residential lawns and at grassy open park areas in the Hawaiian Islands this time of year. These plovers search for worms and insects, American Robins style.
