Here are some recent photos of the proud father of two successfully fledged Piping Plovers now at the juvenile stage from Audubon Connecticut's Director of Bird Conservation, Patrick Comins. These birds are from the nest on Pleasure Beach!
Juvenile and adult male
Our thanks to all of our terrific monitors for helping these birds make it through a busy beach season and avoid predation. The Bridgeport WildLife Guards and the City of Bridgeport also played a big part in assisting the family throughout the past few months, educating beachgoers and letting everyone share the beach successfully with the birds. We look forward to expanding on this success in 2015!
