Piping Plovers

Montrose Point, Lincoln Park
Cook County, IL
2 May 2004

On 2 May 2004 nine Piping Plovers visited Montrose Beach. They were present for much of that Sunday morning, allowing many birders to get a view. Here is one of the group of nine.


Most of the time the plovers stayed in the middle of the beach, occasionally relocating when dogs or beach walkers approached. Here are eight of the nine arranged on the beach.

The birds were also able to take refuge in the dune grass near or in the fenced-off natural area at the east end of Montrose Beach.
