It’s True!

  • A small sand-colored bird, piping plovers are found on thinly vegetated sand beaches and rocky shorelines of North America.
  • They are known to “run, stop, and inspect” the sand as they forage for marine invertebrates.
  • Piping plovers use an elaborate “broken wing display” to distract people and predators away from their chicks’ beach nests.
  • Beach development, RVs, predation by dogs, cats and other wild predators all contribute to the plovers’ endangered status.
