Headed to the beach to enjoy this wonderful weather? Be sure to be mindful of beach-nesting birds!
This is a critical time for birds like the endangered Piping Plover. Coastal Birds Project director Laura Minich Zitske and her team have observed over 90 plover chicks on Maine beaches so far, with more on the way. As you’re sharing the beach, please enjoy watching these well-camouflaged birds…from a distance. Their parents are working hard to keep them safe.
