A birding walk
I had a nice birding walk today. One Plover (Pacific Golden Plover) only in each of the fields were I usually see them. Each was showing signs of being less alarmed by me as long as I kept my distance. Though this bird carries the same name as the Plover that migrates non-stop over 5000 miles from Alaska to Hawaii summer there, the once here come in from Siberia. Their route is partly overland so their longest stretch is “only” 2300-2600 miles.
