Hi All

I was birding on Sunday at Manly, Brisbane and was watching about 20
Double-banded Plovers, about half of which were in full breeding
plumage. I have read that they breed in NZ and was wondering why they
are displaying such magnificent breeding plumage while here in
Australia. Most of the other over-wintering migratory waders (eg.
Bar-tailed Godwits and Grey-tailed Tattlers) are not in their breeding
plumage. Does anyone have further info on the breeding cycles of
Double-banded Plovers?
