Bird was in Cell 3 loosely associated with 4 Semipalmated Plovers. Bird was almost identical in size to Semipalmated. Very pale gray back and white breast noted. Shoulder mark came into the front of chest forming partial breast band (did not cross the entire chest) and was same color as the back of bird. Face was very pale, almost white, ruling out Snowy Plover. Bill was black and stubby. Careful study could not determine leg color - they appeared dark, but I believe this was due to being covered in mud. I also noted that there were no leg bands present on this bird. Bird was to distant for photos with equipment available.
