Lauren’s Piping Plover Report – 4/23/2020

“I am happy I bundled up in my facemask and windproof pants, it was a cold drive over to the beach. Luckily for me, I turned the corner onto the beach and the wind died down. The plovers seemed plenty happy. The numbers are growing!”
“Here are the totals:”
16 pairs
5 singles
total: 37 individuals
“It’s good to see the plovers pairing up. Soon they should start to define their territories and make nest scrapings. Hopefully, the 5 single plovers learn to put deodorant on and attract a mate.”
“I also saw a small flock of sanderlings and to my excitement a black-bellied plover, a bird I’ve never seen before.”
