Piping Plover..... [bird; What's In A Name? ; Very Short]

A cute little shorebird bears that Piping Plover name.
I wonder from where the bird’s first name came.
Is it drawn somehow from the plumbing trade, .....
or from how its colored feathers are “out-laid”?

Then again, the bird’s first name and the word meaning “a shrill, high-pitched sound”.....are the same.
