Piping Plovers Fledge at Island Beach State Park

Piping plover chick at 2 days

The piping plover pair nesting on the beach in Island Beach State Park successfully fledged two chicks. This was the first ocean side nest in more than 25 years and the first in the park in more than a decade.

For a summary of the nesting season visit on the NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife website.
