Wilson's Plover chicks

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Just sharing. My daughters and I were strolling on Jekyll Island here in Georgia yesterday. A park ranger caught our attention and showed us the plover chicks. They had hatched just the day before! Cute little buggers. I could not get close enough for decent pictures, but at least you can get an idea.

Nice shots!  I saw 4 chicks and an adult on Hunting Island, SC a couple weeks earlier 🙂 I'd never seen the young ones before and according to Audubon it was the first confirmed Wilson's nest on our island in "several years" which was cool too
