American Golden Plover (Pluvialis dominica) Science Article 6

abstract

Connors (1983) and Connors et al. (1993) confirmed that American (Pluvialis dominica) and Pacific (P. fulva) Golden-Plovers breeding in sympatry in Alaska are distinct species, a conclusion adopted by the A.O.U. (1993). Distinguishing these two species requires that the bird’s age or plumage class be determined first before the species can be identified.
