In my opinion, the plumage of this bird is too worn to be able to make any proper assessment of wing and rear end structure essential in determining a satisfactory identification. Moreover, otherwise that bird has no strong features that would place it high on my list of individuals that are likely candidates as possible American Golden Plovers. That is not to say it isn't of course.
