What major excitement we had finding this American Golden Plover! Considered to be a national rarity here in Southern Africa. This would be your typical non-breeding plumage view we would get of these birds that are found in the Southern African region. Super excited!! #limpopo #polokwane #sabirds #birding #birdphotography #kings_birds #feather_perfection #ig_discover_birdslife #your_best_birds #bestbirdshots #planetbirds #igbirds #thetweetsuites #birdsofinstagram #birdextreme #instabirds #allmightybirds #bb_of_ig #nuts_about_birds #birdfreaks #bd_birds #bird_brilliance #udog_feathers #plover #americangoldenplover #amerikaansegouestrandkiewiet #jodydebruyn

Throw back to when I came across a migratory flock of one or two hundred #americangoldenplover resting in a field in rural northwest Louisiana this past spring. It was difficult to photograph the entire flock, but here are a few snaps of these fantastic global travellers. #goldenplover #plover #louisianabirds #sentellroad #sentellroadbirds #bird #birds #birding #birdwatching #birdphoto #birdphotography #nature #naturephoto #naturephotography #wildlife #wildlifephoto #wildlifephotography #nikon #nikoncoolpixl840 #nuts_about_birds #bestbirds #birdmagazine

American Golden-Plover is the hyphen really necessary? 🤔 #saturdaymorningthoughts #therearerules #americangoldenplover #discuss #bothered #punctuationpolice

Amerikaanse Goudplevier, American Golden Plover, Barrow (USA), 2015. Although an annual vagrant in the Netherlands, I only saw one in our country in breeding plummage. Much easier on the tundra....hoewel deze soort jaarlijks in Nederland opduikt, zag ik ‘m maar 1x in dit mooie broed/zomerkleed. Dat gaat op de toendra een stuk makkelijker.... #Amerikaansegoudplevier #Americangoldenplover # #exclusive_shots #exclusive_wildlife #birdphoto #bird_brilliance #bird_lovers #wildlifephotography #birdstagram #birdsoninstagram #birdsofinstagram #best_birds_of_ig #best_bird_shots #ig_discover_birds #eye_catching_photos #eye_spy_perfect_birds #eye_spy_birds #wildlife #nature #natuurfotografie #ig_discover_birdslife #nature_brilliance # #birds_adored #your_best_birds #birdsofinstagram #bestbirdshots #live_love_wildlife #bestnatureshots #majestic_wildlife #nuts_about_birds

A plover walking in the mangrove provides a global perspective Half-way through! From the high Arctic tundra on its way to Patagonia, this juvenile American golden plover (Pluvialis dominica) is making a stop near the equatorial line, discovering the tropical vegetation for the first time in its life. The elliptical migration path of this bird species is one of the longest known migration routes: over 40,000 km (25,000 mi), more than three times the diameter of the Earth. Clearly, this bird deserves its American surname, as it visits many of the shores of North, Central and South America. The bird has rather stately and dignified movements: not surprising from such an athlete that must in addition cross several thousands of kilometers in one stretch over open ocean. In fact, a comparison of dates and migratory patterns has lead ornithologists to the conclusion that American golden plovers were among the most likely shore birds to have attracted the attention of Christopher Columbus to the nearby Americas in early October 1492. Finally, this bird has also been cited among the possible agents of long distance dispersal needed to account for the disjunct distributions of some temperate plants found both in North and South America. Do you see these curious roots emerging from the silt, where the bird is walking? They are called pneumatophores or breather roots. These organs are aerial roots that allow the mangrove trees to breathe oxygen at low tide. Mangroves are found in the tropics all over the globe, in America, Asia, Africa and Oceania. This young plover can be grateful to these tropical plants, as mangroves play extremely important ecological roles: they ensure land stabilization in coastal areas with their underground root systems and provide habitats and food for wildlife, including for Arctic-born plovers transiting through the tropics.
