It’s been a tough summer for Piping Plovers and plover supporters this summer. However- the season isn’t over yet!
The pairs that lost eggs in June’s big storm and neste again are hatching. Small chicks are a delight to watch; enjoy the from a distance and please keep your pets inside at this critcal time!
Last week we sent a reminder about being on beaches with resident nesting plovers. This week we begin posting our weekly survey results. The data is mostly for our volunteers but anyone can learn more about nesting plovers.
