Young piping plover banded at Escuminac this summer. P6, nicknamed Pegasus, managed to get to 20 days and more which means that he went to his first flight giving him a very good chance of survival.

South East NB - The SENB Piping Plover Project has visited all beaches where these endangered migratory birds stop to rest, feed and nest. According to the preliminary inventory, 5 nests were successful, 3 nests were lost and 6 adults and 8 chicks were banded.

The inventory takes place on 14 beaches between Preston and Cape Jourimain in southeastern NB. 16 individuals were counted this year compared to 19 last year. 7 pairs of breeding birds and 2 non-breeding adults were observed on 3 beaches.Capture tableau pluvier siffleur

Piping plovers are migratory birds that nest on our beaches before traveling south to get as far as Central America. Since they make their nests directly in the sand, they are susceptible to disturbances by ATVs, storms and strong tides as well as humans and animals stepping on nests.

For this reason, it is essential that we protect beaches, mud flats and marshes!
