My son and I were outside when he thinks he hears my cell phone ringing. Checking my phone it was Larry Beeson calling. I returned his call and he said he has an odd plover out on the mud slowly moving away. He thinks he knows what it is but would not say. I was up there in record time and we scoped it from Riverlands Way. After getting closer we concluded it to be a Wilson's Plover which is No. 333 on my list of Bird Species Photographed in Missouri. This would be a potential 2nd Missouri record.

Scoping and photos from Riverlands Way did not conclusively comfirm ID as it was out there over 100 yards.
