full breeding Piping Plover

We don't usually get to see Piping Plovers in full breeding plumage, but this bird found by Mike Bourdon, would seem to qualify.  It's got as full a breast band as I can remember seeing.  Pics are in reverse order as the bird worked towards and ultimately past me.

I was a little surprised that the orange flag band didn't have a number on it, the only numbers I saw were on the silver Fish and Wildlife (?) band.
