The Koolau District of Aloha Council designed a new patch honoring the Pacific Golden Plover. "Winter" is not far away when you start seeing the plover in yards and parks throughout Hawaii neighborhoods.
Imagine this little bird flying all the way from Alaska to Hawaii. Think of the navigation skills involved. Amazing.
The breeding habitat of Pacific Golden Plover is Arctic tundra from northernmost Asia into western Alaska. It nests on the ground in a dry open area.
This wader is migratory and winters in south Asia and Australasia. A few winter in California and Hawaii, USA. In Hawaii, the bird is known as the kolea. It is a very rare vagrant to western Europe.
Why let the truth stand in the way of a good fish story?
