All,
I was sent these photos a couple of days ago and sent a quick note to support the ID as American. I am in full agreement with Peter, and in fact I would say that this is pretty much a "classic" American based on features others have elaborated on.
Regards
Alvaro

Hi all,

I would respectfully disagree.
I do not see anything wrong for juv. American Golden Plover here - even though it was photographed in India!

My quick first impression is that this is a Pacific GP; too leggy and slim for American. The bill may be at the smaller end for Pacific, but would not look out of place in Hawaii.

This could be the first record of American Golden-Plover in India so any comments would be greatly appreciated. The photo is from southern India where Pacific GP is regular. European GP is a vagrant to India. I am aware that the PP formula has been questioned in North America before because of the possibility of hybrids so that is why we would like comments from folks who are quite familiar with both species.
