Piping Plover – Endangered

Early spring at Wasaga Beach a small number of Plovers arrive.  Volunteers guard the stretch of the beach that they lay their eggs in.  The Plovers are so unaware of danger that their survival rate is very low.  Dogs, people stepping on the nests, and even high winds and big waves are all dangers to these tiny birds.  This poor little soul has five leg tags on him!

On the way to Tiny Marsh this incredible green truck sits in a shed pointing at the road, I am sure the owner opens the door in the morning so I can take a photo.
