American Golden-Plover

Pluvialis dominica

This species is only a rare vagrant to the Pribilofs, despite nesting commonly in western Alaska, due to its migration route through the center of the state as opposed to the coast. Of the few records, a majority are from the spring when the species is easier to distinguish from its cousins, though there is likely no best time to locate this species as the records are spread out across much of the May-September period.
