Observation details

Developing into full breeding plumage. Prominent white eyebrow contrasts with darkish crown giving a capped appearance. Gold flecking on back and head, far less "golden" than the similar Pacific Golden Plover. Quite different to the Grey Plover and from a distance appears as a dark brown plover.
