Snowy Plover Chicks on Okaloosa Island
JUNE 28, 2016
For the most part it remains undeveloped, with rolling dunes, long beaches, and green marshes. 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! Nesting season has been underway for weeks here, and I was becoming worried I would never catch a glimpse of their tiny forms.
