Kiah Walker’s Piping Plover Report – 5/29/2020


“A lot of nests were predated early in the week/last weekend, and I haven’t seen some of the pairs since they lost their nests. In total, I only saw 18 pairs this week. However, some may turn up again, and we still have 14 active plover nests on the refuge. I’m happy to report that a few least terns started nesting as well.”
“I hope you have a great weekend, Kiah!”
Later update:
“A lot of nests were predated early in the week/last weekend, and I haven’t seen some of the pairs since they lost their nests. In total, I only saw 18 pairs this week. However, some may turn up again, and we still have 14 active plover nests on the refuge. Least terns started nesting as well. Although there are only a few nests thus far, most of the activity is near the northern boundary and at Lot 2. The northern boundary, Lot 2, BB1, and Sea Haven has also had a lot of trespasses this week. Please let me know if you have any questions. ”
