Piping Plover male 6/15/15


I found this endangered shorebird on Seapoint Beach the other evening which was a little peculiar since the nearest beaches they breed on are Ogunquit to the north and Hampton to the south. I wasn’t aware they roamed much while they had chicks to attend to, so I imagine this one has lost its mate and is heading south early. It’s an adult male which can be told by the strength of its dark collar.
