Kiah’s Plover Report, 6/24

“We had a lot of plovers re-nesting this week (8 new nests!), bringing our current total to 29 nests and 7 broods of chicks. Although I expect more hatching next week, hatching is rather delayed this year due to all the predation and renesting. We also have at least 14 least tern nests on the refuge beach. Although we don’t have many terns this year, their timing is fairly typical (often arriving/nesting more than a month later than plovers).”
