A great find at this late date, and wondering about the probabilities that this is Ringed Plover?

Wilmington there was a SEMIPALMATED PLOVER. It flew up the walkway ahead of
me and landed near the flagpole in the grassy area where the snow had been
plowed and started digging around in the dirt.

It had a nice black neck ring and face mask and strong yellow on the beak. 
Another person saw it as well and verified the description. Wheeler's farm
is nearby - hopefully it can find some food there.
