Piping Plover Nest on Pine IslandEllen Jedrey, the Assistant Director of the Coastal Waterbird Program at Mass Audubon has notified us of a newly discovered 4 egg Piping Plover nest, currently on MLT property at Pine Island, (see map, “piping plover nest 2″, click on map for full size).
At this time, the nest is in a very precarious position and is in danger of being stepped on. Ms. Jedrey is hoping to put up some signage and simple fencing around the nest to ensure that the nest is protected, but ‘til then, be very careful out there.
