Piping Plovers on the beach
What is it about Piping Plovers? Sanderling are about the same color and size but they only get smiles and comments about how they scurry down the beach. But they see a Piping Plovers, the birds get "oo" and "awe." On Friday Jan 16, I found three hunkered down on the beach. The fourth bird is a Sanderling.
Here is one of the three Piping Plovers starting to search of food at the ocean's edge.
