Allie’s Piping Plover Report – 5/31/2019

“This week has been fairly productive- for the plovers and me! There are 39 pairs, and one single plover- totaling 79 birds.”

“Overall, there are 25 active nests on the beach! Like most weeks, there were some losses, but with many new finds. At least this week more nests were found than lost.”

“I kept my eye out for chicks today, but alas we still only have eggs. My earliest predicted hatch date is June 6th, but I wouldn’t be surprised if chicks start showing up sooner. ”

“Although no least tern nests have been found yet, they are acting a lot more aggressive! Hopefully, nests will appear starting next week. I better start bringing out a large sunhat!”
