A Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms out there! We wanted to give a special mention to our soon to be Piping Plover and American Oystercatcher mothers, and especially to our dear friend pink-flagged 5E who is still doing well with her mate. Here she was in the middle of having some snacks on a recent afternoon.
We also ask that everyone keeps them in mind when visiting the beach on these holiday weekends. With Memorial Day and the unofficial start to summer coming up soon we have to always remember to share the shore with our avian pals, with positive education leading the way in our successful conservation efforts thanks to our intrepid volunteers and super staff...not to mention the great parenting by moms like her!
