Plover preparing for the flight back north

The plover arrived in Kahala pretty early in 2016. We started seeing them around the first of August. There’s one that visits our back yard, several at Waialae Beach Park, and many spread out across the Waialae Country Club’s golf course.

Now the boys are all fattened up, their beautiful plumage in place, and ready to roll on the flight back to Alaska, it seems. We’ll probably wake up one morning and find most of them have gone.

I took this picture this morning to show the beautiful “tuxedo” feathers, signaling their time in Hawaii is nearing an end.

We’ll see them again when the summer is pau!

Ready to head north
