21 THE GREENLAND RINGED PLOVER
Charadrius hiaticula psammodroma

This subspecies of the Ringed Plover breeds on Greenland
and the NE Canadian islands. On Baffin Island it's range
touches the range of Semi-palmated Plover Charadrius
palmatus
and here hybridisation has been found between
these two species by  Niall Smith (N.G.Smith. 1969.
Polymorphism in Ringed Plovers. Ibis 111: 177-188.
Greenland Ringed Plovers are said to winter in W.Africa
and the Ringed Plovers seen in New-Foundland and NE USA
during migration probably belong to the Greenland subspecies.
