It looks like a willet, but annorion's link says it's a large bird. This bird is a bit smaller than a ring-billed gull. Plus, it was spotted in Southwest Michigan. It doesn't look like the willet resides there. (?) I'm far from a bird expert, so if you are certain it's a willet, I'd agree with you. I just thought you might like a bit more information. If you'd like to see the size of it compared to the gull, you can look at the ring-billed gull entry that I posted. This bird is up at the top left corner.
