Re: Elsie Roemer (7/21) - possible Common Ringer Plover?

Jerry Ting

Case closed. 

It's a female Semipalmated Plover in breeding plumage.  The black from lore to above the bill is NOT prominent enough to be a Common Ringed.

Many thanks to David Yeamans and John Sterling for pointing out this key field mark to me and sorry about the false alarm.

Happy Birding,

Jerry Ting
