We wanted to take the time to write a quick thank you note to all of you.

We’re grateful to have your support during the breeding season. We also appreciate your patience with us and our communication during these months. Our website and social media are run by the same people that are in the field every day with the plovers, which is why there is not a regular posting interval or schedule. Make sure to follow us across all of our platforms (our website, Twitter, and Facebook) so you don’t miss anything about the plovers.

Thank you again!

The current count as of June 10th for the 2016 season is 64 pairs. On this day last year there were 62 pairs. The cumulative total for 2015 was 75 pairs.
