I just love working with these guys.
The Piping Plover is listed as endangered in Canada and the inland United States, threatened along coast. Declines resulted from direct and unintentional harassment by people, dogs, and vehicles, destruction of beach habitat for development, and changes in water level regulation.
Fortunately the beach that we go to manages the balance between the Piping Plover and humans.
Take a short flight to the shore and hop up an the sand.
Check out those sporty ‘57 Chevy tail fins!
