Return of the Pacific Golden Plover to Okinawa, Japan
These birds are usually winter visitors to the island. Like November through April.
The year 2020 has pulled a few surprises so, maybe this is just another one.
The scientific name for these birds is Pluvialis fulva.
In Japan, they're called Munaguro (ムナグロ).
More about these birds in this previous post.
