Broughton Beach Pacific Golden-Plover

This Pacific Golden-Plover was found on the edge of the rocks at Broughton Beach 0.5 miles east of Sea Scout Base.  I saw it fly to the west; it did not fly high and did not fly over the water so I suspect it didn't go very far, but I did not try to track it down again.  When it flew it gave a tooEEE call.  In some of the photos the tertials look short, as in an American GP, but I believe that is due to the angle.  The 2nd photo is the only one without an odd angle and in that one the tertials look long.  But comments welcome.
