Pluvialis apricarius.

Pluvialis apricarius.

In 1922 Mrs. A. O. Meinertzhagen separated the bird breeding in the British Isles under the name of G. a. oreophilus on account of certain minor differences in the breeding plumage. As all our Indian specimens in the British Museum are in non-breeding plumage it is impossible to say to which race they belong until more material is available. Under the circumstances I only include the typical more Eastern form, which is the one we should expect to see.
