reporting a banded Piping Plover

Does anyone know the best way to report a banded Piping Plover?  I took the pictures below on Friday on Topsail Island, NC.  I know that in this case, the sequence of colored bands and whether they have flags are what identifies the individual bird, but I've never reported any type of banded bird.  I know the BBL website is a possibility, but I didn't know if there was a more specific place to report a PIPL.  Thanks!

I will let you know, thanks!  And as a side note, two pairs were confirmed this year nesting on Presque Isle, Erie, PA.  These I believe are the first Piping Plovers to nest in the Great Lakes outsidea of Lake Michigan/Superior/Huron area in decades!
