American Golden-Plover

I originally had this bird posted on here as the Black Bellied Plover, but after other birders looked at picture it was thought to be the American Golden-Plover. Golden coloring. Black on top of head and under butt We found bird at end of Tower Road, park car. walk east on driveway past corn fields headlands that is on north side of ditch. Walk to end of the 2nd corn field and there is big flooding just past that corn field. All shore birds were there.
