If I am not mistaken, it is called Pacific Golden-Plover. She was stretching her wings which gave the shot somewhat of an odd look.

Not my best, but this was a catch for me - first sighting of an Eastern Kingbird. Seemed very skittish.
Photo is cropped rather heavily, only had my 200mm to work with, so pardon the quality.

It was only until I saw the parent of this juvenile before I realised what it was.

I seem to see the Great Spotted Woodpecker where ever I go. Only hope one day to see a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, Although similar in appearance the latter is half the size to that of the Great Spotted.
