This Charadrius plover was at Bolivar Flats on July 26, 2008 - I had heard what sounded like a CRPL call among SEPL calls from a loose flock of small plovers flying by me - they landed some distance away, and by the time I caught-up this flock had disappeared among hundreds of small shorebirds feeding on the flats - thus I have no idea if this individual gave the CRPL-like call. Note the black reaching/surrounding the gape-point on both sides of the bill; the bill shape/length look wrong for SEPL and okay for CRPL, but I can't make up my mind about the presence/absence of toe webbing...:

Clearly there is some webbing between the outer and center toes - but is it still within the range for CRPL?:
