Piping Plover

We went to the beach on Sunday looking for Snowy Owls but we didn’t see any. They probably have already migrated north although I don’t know why, we have plenty of arctic air right here on Cape Cod! So we didn’t see any Snowy Owls but we did see an itty bitty Piping Plover! It was so tiny and blended in so well if it hadn’t been moving I wouldn’t have seen it at all. It is one of the protected species around here and I had never seen one before so I was pretty excited! It was hard to get good shots. She kept his distance and moved along the shore line really, really fast. She sure is cute though, don’t you think?!

Here is an alphabet book of endangered animals and sadly the Piping Plover is included. Very nice book though (check it out at Amazon by clicking on image)…
