***mega; collected by E. B. Pillsbury; ad female in partial breeding plumage; notes from article: "September 11, 1911, Mr. E. B. Pillsbury shot at Scarborough an adult female Pacific Plover. I am indebted once more to Mr. Pillsbury's keenness in the observations of birds, and detection of unusual characteristics. The bird had about half completed the postnuptial moult. Mr. Pillsbury observed that its note differed from that of the Golden Plover. The specimen has been examined by Dr. Jonathan Dwight, who concurs in my identification."
