Wow! I was looking for a bird myself and I found your bird!!!!

It is a Common Nighthawk. It doesn't build a nest but nests right on the ground so your bird could possibly be nesting or just resting.

Check out these two sites!!

I'm thinking it is a shorebird. It could possibly be a Purple Sandpiper but they have a more yellow beak and legs. It looks young too.

here is a link to picture of juvenile purple sandpiper:
