Piping Plover & Chicks (Charadrius melodus) MA©JMC_'14_028CSHAdd to Lightbox Download
After the sun goes down on the Massachusetts beach, a third Piping Plover chick looks for room under its mother's warm breast. Endangered Piping Plovers lay their eggs on the upper beaches amongst the rocks they resemble. The eggs are difficult to spot even when you know to look for them, so they are vulnerable and protected. Both parents share sitting on the eggs.
