I was hard-pressed to make an id with no experience with this species. After reviewing multiple accounts in both field guides and online, I concluded it was a juvenile American Golden Plover for the long primaries extending beyond the tail, the pale supercilium (not yellowish), the softly barred underparts (not streaked) and general size and bill size. Despite those field marks - would be happy to have the experts chime in please!
