Ringed Plover!!!!!!!????????   Are there any more details?  Was it compared 
to any Semipalmated Plovers?  This might be the second or third New England 
record!!!!!  I know I am being a bit of a jerk but this is a major major 
major rarity......

Any more details?

I think I need to take my blood pressure medicine....
