Protecting Piping Plovers in the Great Lakes
The shores of the Great Lakes were once home to nearly 800 pairs of Piping Plovers, a small shorebird. Today, about 75 pairs remain. Learn about research on these birds, current recovery efforts, and recent nesting attempts in the Chicago area. Color-banding has given us the opportunity to get to know individuals - hear a few stories about plovers that the researchers have come to know well!
