While I was walking along the campus of Leeward Community College I came across this Pacific Golden Plover in a large grass field. So I slowly crept up careful not to scare her away and managed to snap this photo. This is a migratory bird that winters in Hawaii. It is also known in Hawaii as the Kolea. By now this bird is probably flying back to Asia but never fear it will return next summer. These are very territorial and tend to return to the exact same place year after year.
