We think this is a Sandpiper. A nesting pair has four eggs smack in the middle of the neighbors walkway to their 5th wheel. Whatever it is, it is an incredibly dumb bird ... out in the open without shelter of any kind, under the feet of humans and at the mercy of preditors. We saw them nesting in Arkansas back in April. Obviously, the breeding season is much later here in Wisconsin.
