First post on OBOL. I was out at Broughton Beach again after work and noticed a distinctive plover. I narrowed the ID down to either Pacific Golden-Plover or American Golden-Plover. I went with American based on sharp contrast between cap and supercilium, longer wings, and note in Sibleys that juveniles can appear quite yellowish. I ruled out Black-bellied plover based on size and shape of bill and lacking of streaking on breast.
I'm hoping that the collective wisdom of the list can confirm my analysis, or help me understand where I went astray.
