Small shorebird with striking black underparts
I drove down to the dike to see if anything new was there. I saw a few new creatures.
I think fall migration has started as it has been several months since I have seen Ruddy Turnstones and Black-bellied Plovers.

Immature black bellied plover
The grey plover (Pluvialis squatarola), known as the black-bellied plover in North America, is a medium-sized plover breeding in Arctic regions. It is a long-distance migrant, with a nearly worldwide coastal distribution when not breeding.
