Pacific Golden Plover

September 25th 2011

A flock of Pacific Golden Plover in the ricefields just outside Hakodate 3 years ago today. I was actually looking for Sharp Tailed Sandpiper in the same area, but I couldn't find any (and I've yet to find any anywhere).

Not a great photo by any means but it did earn me $75 as it was used in an American birding magazine...............

    1. Thanks Margaret, actually I've had quite a few printed in magazines but most of them are not especially good photos.

  2. $ 75 is somebody's sincere way of saying that they liked your photo !

    1. I think they needed a picture of them 'migrating', the article was about migration routes over the Pacific Ocean.
