American Golden Plover, update 3

The American Golden Plover (Pluvialis dominica), first discovered on May 25, was still at the same location this morning, June 13.

The irrigation pond is rapidly drying up, there being little more than a shallow puddle of water left in the bottom at the moment. Two things can happen:

1. The owners will allow the pond to dry out completely, in order to carry out cleaning or repairs.

2. The pond will be refilled, and the habitat will be transformed, making it unsuitable for the plover, and for waders in general.

It looks like the American Golden Plover will soon be forced to move on...
