Snowy Plover Chicks on Okaloosa Island
JUNE 28, 2016
For the most part it remains undeveloped, with rolling dunes, long beaches, and green marshes. In another area – near an abandoned military building – a pair of Killdeer had nested next to the remnants of a dirt road. I have seen dozens of Snowy Plovers and other shorebirds along the Emerald Coast of Florida, but until last week I had never seen their chicks!
