After consulting The Crossley ID Guide, I still couldn't make an identification for this bird. You can see how much larger it is than the plover to the left. Photographed in Avalon, NJ:

The first is a Black-bellied Plover (non breeding).

Very nice series, I like the light in 2,3,4 but they could be brightened a bit.

Thank you.

I tried brightening these photos but the whites would start getting blown out. I have to figure out an acceptable balance between the two.

You're welcome. If you have Photoshop you can protect your highlights using Curves. Simply place a handle on the diagonal of the Curves graph at the high end(lights), about the first grid line down from the corner will do. Then grab the diagonal in the center and pull up until you achieve the brightness you want. It's best to adjust your high res file for best results. Check your highlights with the eyedropper to make sure you don't blow them out.

Here's one I did quickly:
