A big thank you to Timothy L. Thompson for sending us these awesome Piping Plover hatchling shots from Bluff Point. That one photo in particular showing the four newly-hatched little ones piled together is really incredible.
Those are some very young birds! Timothy has a wonderful talent and a very long lens, so please enjoy these images and binocular and scope views when you're on the beach, but maintain a safe distance from the chicks as much as you can. We will post more images from our staff soon.
