St. Ignace, MI, Sept. 20th. shore of Lake Huron.  The bird spent several minutes methodically moving along the water's edge, rarely getting more than three feet from the shore, picking through the small rocks and shore debris.

I'm going with juvenile AMGP over Black-bellied because of the stronger eyebrow, weak eyeline, and more distinct spotting top and bottom.

I have additional angles if necessary but I suspect this one will be sufficient.  Thanks.

Yeah, but https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Black-bellied_Plover/species-compare/32800671, juvie to juvie

I don't want to be That Guy, but I'm going to be That Guy.  I see more pale yellow flecks and stronger eyebrow than were apparent in the BBPL shot in Macauley.  If these two still say BBPL, I'll throw in the towel.

Thanks either way..
