Semipalmated Plover
1
Piping Plover

Yellow legs short black bill light chest band and overall color no leg bands. Additional info:Based on what I could see, at 25 feet in front of me, it did not appear
to have been a Semipalmated Plover:

Overall color in crown, breastband and upper body was a light/pale tan,
not darker brown like a Semi.
That was what made me think something other than Semipalmated Plover
This bird's bill was all black, not bi-colored. Also, the white
supercillium and lack of darker auriculars were
more consistent with the photos and drawing I had in the field guides
(the 'plain face' described by Sibley).
The bird did not associate with the other Semis which were in a group 50
meters further into the impoundment.
It was foraging along drier parts of the mudflat.

That is all that I have. The pictures are not the best, but they do tend
to show the lighter overall color.
As always, second opinions are welcome
