Yesterday was a gorgeous day so we took a walk down Coast Guard Beach. It was glorious… one of the Top 10 days!
We got part way down the beach and there were some new signs that said, “Nesting Nervous Birds” and “Area Closed.” We were surprised as the area was not closed a few days ago. We stopped and looked around getting ready to turn back.
Out of the corner of my eye I saw a Piping Plover in the distance. Something else was scurrying by the water. My camera has an awesome zoom so I was able to take a few photographs of the family of Piping Plovers from afar.
I had never seen a Piping Plover chick before. They were so cute and so tiny. What an experience…
