Observation details

Mixed in with a group of Black Bellied Plovers (BBPLs). Smaller plovers than near by Black Bellied Plovers HEAD NECK AND BACK WASHED WITH GOLDEN HIGHLIGHTS although this did not come out so well in my photos. GoldenPlovers had a dark cap set off by the white supercilious. cap was much darker than BBPL's. Head and bill noticeably smaller than BBPL. legs seemed longer than BBPL. Black breeding plumage coming in on one more than the other. Looking carefully with 60X scope could see black spots filling in along lower flanks and under tail coverts. Terrible photos Clare Ormesher got better photos.
