BTW, we went to check the Southport Country Club and even asked permission. Do NOT go there. They told us NO,not allowed to even look from a the parking lot. We checked from Sasco Hill Beach with no luck as well as the Hunt Club also.

The bird flew in off of the sound right over the east side and up over the creek and inland. I heard it call 6 times and that's how I found it. I knew immediately I had a Plover other than Black-bellied or American Golden from the loud single note call. I have checked some fields in the area with no luck so far. So familiarize yourself with the call. 
> Jory and Preston, check the fields at school. The Plover headed inland but it could still be somewhere along the coast. Be sure to check grassy or plowed fields.
