This week has been a good one for our plovers! There are a total of 20 nests. More nests are found every time I go on the beach, and I have a feeling there are still a few I haven’t found yet. In total, we have 79 piping plovers (39 pairs, 1 single).
Most birds have bounced back very quickly after their nest was depredated or flooded last week. By the first week of June, there may even be some chicks running around!
Least terns have also begun to colonize and scrape!
Until next week,
