American Golden-Plover

The American Golden Plover is a distinctive shorebird of open grasslands, tundra, and alpine areas and has one of the longest migratory journeys of any shorebird. It breeds on the high Arctic tundra of Alaska and Canada and winters in the grasslands of central and southern South America. On the breeding grounds, male golden-plovers use a beautiful, buoyant flight to attract mates.

In South America, AFSI partners are working with range owners.
