Pacific Golden Plover ( Pluvialis fulva ) Singing

Golden Fever Spotted gold and black on the crown, back and wings. Its face and neck are black ( even sometimes hard to see its eyes) with a white border and it has a black breast and a dark rump, legs are black. This wader is migratory and winters in south Asia and Australasia and its breeding habitat is Arctic tundra from northernmost Asia into western Alaska, means it may travel 5500miles??? how they come to central India? seniors may pls explain. Behavior what we observed is very swift in flight, but are more commonly seen roosting or foraging on the ground. Pacific Golden-Plovers spread out while foraging. They are visual foragers and feed by running and seizing prey.
