The male Great Lakes Piping Plover with combo BO:X,g has done it again. He’s the first GLPIPL to return on the breeding grounds in 2016, a title he held last year in 2015 as well. He even returned on the exact same day (April 13th) to the same area, the mouth of the Platte River (a portion of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore).
BO:X,g is also now tied for oldest GLPIPL ever recorded at 14 years of age.
Stay tuned for updates from the breeding grounds now as the 2016 season has officially begun!
