Piping Plover tracks

Look at these Piping Plover tracks all over the beach at Harkness Memorial State Park this week, courtesy of Timothy L. Thompson.

Below we see some tracks close up but also what was likely a resting spot. Looks comfortable and serene, especially in the cooler, windier, and "March-ier" week we have had.

Our thanks once again to Timothy for some wonderful photos, and to everyone who has already been out in the field conducting surveys and recording detailed observations about the threatened species as well as others. We have a long season ahead of us and our work is only getting started. Keep an eye out for fencing party dates in early April, and if you can join CT DEEP, USFWS, and the Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds in erecting exclosures and fencing we would love the help!
