Eurasian Golden Plover

Vatnajökull National Park, Iceland

This beautiful Eurasian Golden Plover or Pluvialis apricaria must have been a parent with a nest and young nearby. As I walked down the trail it was running along in front of me and feigning a broken wing. This distraction display is similar to what I've seen done by a Killdeer. The bird is attempting to lead you way from it's nest and young.
