On behalf of Aphrodite who sent in an email:-

Brown with darker mottling, almost striped. Size of an oyster catcher, but shorter legs. Beak like a willet, maybe golden brown eyes but it was getting dark. Was walking in a flower bed in Upstate SC. Not a water area. Maybe the size of a medium hen. 

It walked into thick shrubbery so I didn't see his wings. We have lots of killdeer- this was bigger and stockier.
