Sanderling (Calidris alba) by Scott Kruitbosch

Posted on Mar 21, 2014

This Sanderling (Calidris alba) is wondering where all the Piping Plovers are. A few have finally made their way to Long Island and Massachusetts but I have yet to receive a confirmed report for cold Connecticut. Last March our first individual was two weeks ago! Weather and climate play such an enormous role in the lives and successful breeding of our birds, especially those on the coast. Hurry up, PIPL!
