On Thursday May 9, I went down to see if the Wilson's Plover's nest survived the super high tides and heavy rains.
   I saw the two adult plovers over to the side of the nest, and there were three eggs!  They made it! 

On Sunday May 12,  This Wilson's Plover became a mother.  See the chick over to the left!  It was wobbly.  It took a few moments for the chick to gain the strength get up.  Then we saw another chick.   . It took a few moments for the chicks to gain the strength to get up. Then they were up and running.   Wow!
