A Gift by the Sea

Just when I think that our Red River Piping Plovers are all grown up, and probably off and away at some other beach

I find one along the shore, scootling in my direction…


Pausing to look, to make sure I am no threat…


Its tiny black bill, still covered with salty sand sprinkles after digging for breakfast.


Someday I know that I’ll arrive at the beach and they will be gone.

But for right now still being able to see them with their family, watching them grow up, is a gift I can’t even begin to describe.


I hope you’ve been enjoying them, too.
