Snowy Plover - Charadrius alexandrinus
|Chicks at birth||
|IUCN Conservation Status||
The Snowy Plover is found in both North and South America, usually on the western and gulf coasts. The Snowy Plover is a threatened species. Part of the problem is that they like to build their nests on sparsely vegetated beaches along the coast. This has made them vulnerable to people and their animals.
