Beachgoers Warned About Snowy Plover Nests

(Salem, OR) -- Officials are warning Oregon Beachgoers to watch for western snowy plover nesting sites through September 15th. The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department says the threatened species nests on open sand, and both the nests and the chicks tend to blend in with the sand. Areas where the birds are located have been roped off. All recreation in those areas is off limits including walking a dog, driving a vehicle, riding a bike, camping, campfires, and flying kites or drones. The Oregon Parks website has a map showing the locations where the nests are located.
