The Piping Plovers Have Fledged!

While going through the ONTBIRDS email bird alert I found a message about the Piping Plovers in Darlington Provincial Park.

As of Wednesday night, the first group of plovers have left the nesting area , meaning that this family is the first Piping Plovers to successfully fledge on the Canadian shore of Lake Ontario in over 80 years!

The second group of plovers, which are around 12 days younger than the first group is expected to take off in about two weeks.

I was very happy to hear this news, and I'm not alone in hoping they return for many years to come!

You can read the e-mail Here.

I also came across this message with some exciting information while on the website getting the URL for the PIPL. Click Here to see it!
