Pretty Kolea in the grass

It’s always nice to see a Kolea, or Pacific Golden Plover.  I wonder if this one just arrived home after migrating to Alaska to mate.  They are said to make the nonstop trip in fifty hours over some 2,500 miles of open ocean.  Quite an accomplishment!

Just a nice person who sees the good in life. And in nature.
