Lockwood Folly, Brunswick County, NC (between Wilmington and the NC / SC line).  March 15, 2020

I had a tern vibe when it flew by but now the wings appear to be too far back for that, and too deep-chested.  A shorebird, maybe?  And yes, this is the only photo.

Thanks for any help.

Sorry, I just had to throw something interesting out just for fun. I can barely make heads and tails here. The bill ALMOST looks upturned but I might be seeing things. I could almost see it being a gull or tern but I'm not good with profiles and such in flight... and would still lean shorebird... 
It's not the worst photo I've seen of a bird... I like sharing photos that stump people... 🙂
