Great Lakes Piping Plover

The Great Lakes Piping Plover is a treat to see as they playfully scamper up and down the shoreline. It is well advised to keep a distance and avoid their nesting areas as they are an endangered species. Their breeding pair population fluctuates, but is around 5 dozen currently. Lake levels, declining habitat and predators take their toll on this playful bird.
