Tue 14 May Pacific Golden-Plover East Point (Darwin)
Moderator Note: Interesting with presence of breeding plumage eclipse. Interested if this has been observed by others? Located on rocky headland near war museum Pacific Golden-Plover (7) 2 in moulting stage, i.e. starting to show breeding plumage. Advised that due to lateness, these birds will probably stay for the winter and are usually juveniles?
