DNREC: Piping Plovers at Cape Henlopen Doing Well

Posted: Updated:

GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP)- State officials say a pair of piping plovers who once lost their nest are regrouping in Cape Henlopen State Park.
The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Controls' Division of Fish and Wildlife tells local media that the pair has nested and have three eggs so far. There are several other groups that are thriving on the island this year.
Piping plovers are listed as "threatened" on the endangered species list. Every year since 1990, DNREC officials say piping plover nesting areas at Cape Henlopen State Park are closed to the public in order to protect the shorebirds during their nesting season.
