For the bird enthusiast, the Golden-Plovers migration is just the start. For most of us, who don't live in the tundra or southern cone, the Golden-Plover is only a casual visitor to our locales. Connecticut is no exception. Although the past week has seen more than a few Golden-Plovers, they are still delightful birds and worth chasing. When one was reported at Hammonasset Beach State Park, I had to go and chase it. This young GP was so cooperative that it got within 10 feet of me and allowed me to take some great pictures. I can't wait to go chasing this bird again and be witness to its migration!
