Make Way For Plovers

Part of Menauhant Beach in Falmouth will be closed until July in order to protect a pair of nesting piping plovers. Symbolic-fencing (did they draw a line in the sand?) has been placed around the nest to prevent beachgoers from disturbing the area. The birds are a threatened species, with fewer than 2,000 pairs living along the Atlantic coast. [Falmouth Patch]
