Don’t Forget The Shorebirds

Piping Plover

For birders, warbler migration is so exciting . . . so satisfying . . . one tends to forget there are other birds moving north.   

This evening for a change of pace I travelled to Popham Beach, in nearby Phippsburg to see how many Piping Plovers were nesting there this year.

I saw three sitting on nest enclosures

and another three running across the sand. A ranger told me he knew of nine on the the beach this spring. I read somewhere that there are more Polar Bears in the world than Piping Plovers.

Also saw a number of Black-bellied Plovers, a couple Willets and a Least Tern.
