Drawing – Pacific Golden-Plover

Pacific Golden-Plover - By Terry SohlI’ve decided that I’m going to try to do one drawing a week.  I’m getting faster at it, so even that isn’t too much of a drag on my time!!  I can do one like this in about 2-3 hours, if I sit and work on it until it’s done. 

This one is a Pacific Golden-Plover.  If you’ve seen the other drawings I’ve done and posted out here, you likely know the story.  As with the others, this is one I don’t have a photo of!  Hence the decision to draw it instead.

Really beautiful birds when in breeding plumage such as this.   There’s the very similar American Golden-Plover that IS found in South Dakota in migration.  Well, at least that’s what they tell me.  It’s one of my nemesis birds, both from a photo standpoint and from just a birding standpoint.   I’ve at least SEEN pretty much everything that normally migrates through here, but the American Golden-Plover is one that’s somehow eluded me.  Who knows maybe the next drawing will be of THAT species of Golden-Plover….
