Volunteers and scientists have counted 77 piping plovers on two wilderness beaches in New Jersey – the largest numbers of beach-nesting birds we’ve seen in recent years!
Researchers are searching for answers to a baffling mystery: where do piping plovers spend their winters?
We had an unusual experience in Rhode Island this year–an abandoned brood of plover chicks. With the help of biologists, the chicks survived. Check out the adorable photos!
