PIC OF THE WEEK: 03/28/16 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2016 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Laie, HI • Kamehameha Hwy.
Notes: This was our target photo-op for our latest trip. We knew our photography time would be very limited this go-round, but we had high hopes anyway. Within the first couple of days we saw a few Plovers, but none had changed into their breeding plumage yet (SEE: PIC OF THE WEEK 02/21/09). This typically happens around late March to early April. By early May they migrate to Alaska and Western Canada to breed. Then they return to Hawaii around August to September for the winter. Finally about midway through our visit, we caught the first glimpse of a bird in breeding plumage, just north of where we were staying. With an additional two day delay in our already full schedule, we thought we might not be able to get out and photograph this beautiful mid-sized sandpiper in its breeding plumage. But late one afternoon of the final week, an opportunity presented itself. So, we headed out with our cameras ready. These birds tend to frequent the same territory each year, where they forage for insects, leaves and flowers in open grassy areas. Just as we hoped, this Pacific Golden Plover was hanging around the same area where it had been previously sighted. We sat low at the edge of the field. Soon this bird passed right in front of us at close range several times in its typical run-and-stop, run-and-stop fashion. It was amazing to see this handsome bird in such detail!
