St. Isidore - I found a flock of 110 in a freshly tilled field. It is late for this species and very late for a large flock. Note the absense of black in the 'armpit' distinguishing it from the Black-bellied Plover.

I was hard-pressed to make an id with no experience with this species. After reviewing multiple accounts in both field guides and online, I concluded it was a juvenile American Golden Plover for the long primaries extending beyond the tail, the pale supercilium (not yellowish), the softly barred underparts (not streaked) and general size and bill size. Despite those field marks - would be happy to have the experts chime in please!

St. Isidore - These birds came into a sewage lagoon and spent five minutes trying to find a spot to land. The water was too high so they headed off unsuccessfully.

Southwestern storms often bring North American vagrants to the coast of Iceland. This one landed by the road while I was driving and looked pretty tired, since it did not move away from me for a while. I observed it in the next days and it looked much better, sign that it was recovering from fatigue!
