Plovers on a pond

Pacific Golden Plovers (Pluvialis fulva) enjoying the water. In the winter, these birds migrate from Alaska to Hawaii where the bird is known as the Kolea. And the water? Sadly, not some tranquil mountain lake or forest pond. Instead, it’s a dip in the ground near the end of the runway of Upolu airport. Nice view though.
