Rhoda found a pair of Piping Plovers at Tiscornia yesterday. They were still there in the afternoon when I went by. In the 8 years I've lived here I've seen them exactly every other year.
I was expecting them to be half or 3/4 of a mile north of Tiscornia since that's the area most free of people when the beach is busy. Instead they were a hundred yards north of the Tiscornia just standing there resting. I took a couple pics with the SLR but kicked myself for not lugging the scope out to be able to read the bands. This one has some blue on both legs.
The other one had no blue.
I'll do some investigating online and see if their origin is deducible.
