June 18, 2020 We’ve been watching a few piping plover nests for weeks and the other day we saw their babies hatch! It’s so beautiful, the mother bird with the babies under her for days. At times they’ll go out for food and the daddy watches over them. they learn to fly by themselves and take off to the Carribean in August! Wildlife staff comes to check on them periodically because they’re endangered. The bird is difficult to see when it is standing still, as it blends well with open, sandy beach habitats. It typically runs in short spurts and stops. So cute to watch them grow.
