If you're into shorebirds, come take a drive around the Main Pool on the Wildlife Drive this week/weekend! Be sure to stay in your car while viewing. If you need to stretch your legs, the South Spring and Esker Brook Trails should be busy with songbirds!

Shorebird science? There's an app for that! iPlover, released today, was created in partnership with U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and National Park Service to allow nest monitors to report plover nest sites. This reporting will help in the management of this endangered shorebird and note the impact of sea level rise and coastal resiliency. Head to http://1.usa.gov/1Eaj92V to learn more.
