Piping Plover Hatchling

Posted on Jun 4, 2017

This is a Piping Plover hatchling – only a few days old – foraging on the beach with its parents and siblings. The NBA has a campaign called, “This Is Why We Play”. This photo exemplifies why WE advocate, educate, and conserve species and their habitats in collaboration with the Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds.

It is often difficult work in a challenging field for our staff and our volunteers. While we can sometimes lose sight of the bigger picture, this photo of a little bird reminds us that our efforts are all worthwhile. Please keep spreading our ‘Share the Shore’ philosophy as we head into the summer beach season, and pass on the passion for these delightfully adorable birds!
