Piping Plover & Chick

Piping Plover & Chick

These are the birds we climbed some pretty high sand dunes to see at Sleeping Bear Dunes State Park. We saw two adults and three little chicks. The adult bird is only about 7 inches long, so this little chick was about 2 inches of fluff zipping along the beach, with mom trying to keep watch over all three. This is an endangered bird with protected nesting sites. It was worth the steep climb up and down sand dunes to see and photograph these cuties.
