Saturday I went to the marsh in search of the merlin. I did not see it, but I
did see a small flock of sandpipers which I believe were westerns.  At times the sandpipers were following what I initially thought was a killdeer, but it did not sound like a killdeer as it flew away. 

Looking at my photos on the computer, I believe it was a  semipalmated plover, but there is no dark ring above the eye. There also seems to be a lot of white on its forehead.

Scroll down page 47 and let me know what you think.    I posted up my best photos.  I have more which are not very good but show more of the bird's face.  I would be happy to e-mail them to anyone who wants to take a crack at identifying the bird.
