Piping Plover — Piping plovers need special protection throughout their nesting season and especially during the increased beach activity over the long Memorial Day weekend. By obeying the posted signs and staying away from fenced areas, beach visitors can avoid disturbing the nesting birds.

Volunteers to welcome piping plovers back

Piping Plovers will be migrating back to Connecticut’s beaches any day now and conservationists are preparing to do everything possible to help them have a breeding season as successful as last year’s, starting with training sessions for experienced volunteers and newcomers.

People who participate in the Connecticut Audubon society's birding trips, like this recent trip to look for shore birds, will learn how climate change is anticipated to alter local wildlife habitats.
