Birds in Spain
José Ramón Gómez González
On 22.9.2011, José Ramón Gómez González found an American Golden Plover (Pluvialis dominica) at Laguna de Muro, Porto do Son, A Coruña. Identification of the pair of 'Lesser Golden Plovers' has always been and interesting subject and Spain has not been a case apart. In this website we have discussed the identification of American Golden plover in Spring (Aiguamolls de l'Empordà, April 2001) and Autumn (Zeluán, Asturies, October 2003). Besides photos here and there in the website, a case of a bird at Llobregat Delta, Barcelona, 28-30.8.2002 was also dealt with.
For that reason the excellent collection of photos of this bird at A Coruña on September 2011 showing all identification features are worth dedicating this webpage.
