The chick was having fun hopping all over the beach for awhile. (pictures are clickable for better viewing)
Sometimes the chick would sit down and I guess rest.
Another time as we started moving away the chick ran over to the adult.
Next thing I see is the adult sitting on the chick. Is it feeding or is it for protection? I am not sure.
It was fun watching the Piping Plover family, especially when I know these are a protected species. It is not often you get to see the Piping Plovers. Also sighted in the area were American Oystercatchers, and some Least Terns. Lots of seagulls and people.
I am glad I saw the chick and stopped walking but I think the chick was able to move pretty fast. I believe the adults were there too. Some of my pictures are cropped so I could see them closer, I did want to give the family their space.
