S Thailand plover id help requested please (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Hi, I am almost sure that these are little ringed plovers but I am hesitating because of the lack (or almost complete lack) of an eye ring, no white forhead, and I am very bad at colours so I cannot tell if the leg colour is correct. When I looked at pics here and in e-bird I did not see any without the eye ring. But I cannot think of anything else it would be unless a rare, for this part of Thailand, common ringed plover. But they also I believe are not usually found inland.
thanks in advance for your assistance

Yellow orbital ring with elongated rear end narrow it down to Little Ringed and Long-billed Plovers. I'm not familiar with Long-billed but plumage and location is both better for Little Ringed.
