Wilson’s Plover

2:49 pm

A Wilson’s Plover was photographed this morning by a Snowy plover researcher on the beach on Navy property just north of Imperial Beach, about halfway between camp surf and silver strand State Beach. Though it is Navy property, lots of people walk the beach there as long as one stays down near the tideline. Thus, do not go on the upper beach for that reason and because of nesting plover potential. A bunch of folks will try for the bird now in the later afternoon and we will post an update. But be aware that a fair number of Wilson’s plovers in California have been one day wonders.
