Subject: [NHBirds] Piping Plovers back for another season
The Union-Leader has an article up about the Piping Plovers that nest
on Hampton and Seabrook beaches. And it's a real success story:

Last year there were 11 PIPL pairs on NH beaches, which fledged a
total of 20 chicks. Since 1986, the birds have nearly tripled the
number of nesting pairs on the East Coast, from 790 pairs in 1986 to
over 2000 pairs last year. This year, Fish & Game observers have
found 7 nesting pairs in NH, and are hoping for more. They're also
hoping for a successful nesting season since the COVID-19 emergency
measures are keeping people off the beaches.
