While taking a little walk on a deserted beach at low tide
D spotted several birds...turned out to be the
Piping Plovers.

OH! we have the snowy plover here! such a cute bird. you got so close, we have to stay behind barricades since they are protected (the nesting sites).

Hi Lori ann,
The Piping Plover is also protected here and
I zoomed in with my camera for I didn't want to frighten or disturb them! It's the first time I've seen that type of plover.

Good morning Nan, what an interesting name for the bird. Don't think I've ever seen one in person. Glad they are protected.

Loved the photos of the doghouse birdhouse:)
