Three eleven-day-old Piping Plover chicks, one preening, and two under Mama’s wing. 

With the beach rake, crows, gulls, fires, dogs, garbage, and humans simply enjoying our beautiful Good Harbor Beach, there is mortal danger at every moment for these tiniest of birds. Thank you to all the awesome volunteers for all that you are doing to keep these little balls of fluff safe. Eleven days surviving, especially during a holiday weekend, is no small feat!

Learning to follow Mom’s voice commands.

  1. Awesome post and the words carry much love for the families who call beach home and raising there young there under the warmth of the sun of mother and father wings! Thank you all and Kim for your post watching over these little delicate endangered lives! 🙂 Dave & Kim 🙂
