A good assortment of shorebirds, waders and a bonus falcon to boot were found at Bunche Beach and the surrounding areas in Southwest Florida.
Listed in Audubon's "10-under-10000" awareness campaign, the Piping Plover is one of two shorebirds featuring on the list (the other being the Black Oystercatcher). This plover has a global population of only 8,000 birds and is still little understood (for example, the fact that the majority winter in the Bahamas was "discovered" only in 2011).
