Happy fall!

A golden-plover for the first day of fall!  

It was roosting with a flock of shorebirds (Black-bellied Plovers, Dunlin, Red Knots, and a Whimbrel) along the Bodega Harbor shoreline tonight just south of the Spud Point Marina breakwater.

I'm leaning towards it being an American Golden-Plover (Pluvialis dominica), but I'm still looking through photos.  Let me know what you think! 

P.S.  Golden-Plovers are rare migrants in Bodega Bay.
