grey plover migrate to Israel in the fall and some of the population stay for the all winter , they are very shy specious that tend to alarm all the other specious around them first when danger is occurred, and very vocal . there is another 2 specious the that look almost the same, european golden plover and the pacific golden plover, the first one is relatively common near the shore in the winter, and the second one is rear on the fall, they look almost the same with different in body ( more narrow on the pacific ) and the beak size . the grey plover in the winter is very similar to the golden plover especially in good lighting , the golden is a little bit more gold on the side wings, and the undercover in flight is more grey, in this shot the grey look almost the same as a golden ( it was not easy to identify, but I change the identify to grey plover because of the less gold on the side and more white on the crowned and belly )

Really very beautiful excellent pose and detail of the plumage beautiful light that affects the plumage (pity that green triangle that you see below I would have deleted) Compliments Greetings Massimo and Good Light ;-) Veramente molto bella ottima la posa ed il dettaglio del piumaggio bella la luce che colpisce il piumaggio(peccato quel triangolino verde che si vede sotto io lo avrei eliminato) Complimenti Saluti Massimo e Buona Luce
yes marco you are right, at first I was identified it also as a grey plover but the lighting make it harder to decide so in the end I decide golden , but after more in depth look I decide that this is the grey plover because of the more white on crowned and belly.
in the winter in very good lighting it is very hard sometime to distinguish them, the more grey of the grey plover seen more easily when he shaded and in flight ( arm pit grey ) , in good light they almost the same .

More than colors Benny I would remark bill and head shape, Golden plover has a more gentle shape to a thinner bill ;-) More than colors Benny I would remark bill and head shape, Golden plover has a more gentle shape a thinner bill
