Long bill

This bird was sitting in my driveway when my husband went to leave around 2pm. It just sat there and made no effort. He called me out and still it sat. I took a quick picture thinking it would flee, but it didn't leave until I got 3 feet away from it. We were in awe of its long beak and large size. It was roughly about the size of a small duck. I did not watch the flight pattern or wing span, because I was looking at a large amount of white liquid that was next to it. If it was feces it was thinner than milk, which I doubt was a normal consistency. It flew across the street and landed in a neighbors yard. I wasn't sure if was injured so I didn't want to further chase it.

I notice that no one has responded to your curiosity. I do not know what this is but I could guess: 1)it is probably sick and couldn't keep up other migrating birds in it's flock 2)it looks possibly like a Plover of some sort
