Piping Plovers Return to the Jersey Shore!

Standard
Piping Plover

I “digiscoped” these photos of Piping Plovers. Digiscoping is when you place your iPhone up against your binoculars to create a zoom lens and closer captures.

My favorite time of year is when all of the birds begin to return to the Jersey Shore. Osprey once again rule the sky, and the beaches are filled with small, scurrying shorebirds like Piping Plovers. I saw this pair along Fisherman’s Path on Sandy Hook North Beach on Friday, March 25.
