[log in to unmask] Roger Van Ghent & I participated in the International Piping Plover Census at Matanzas inlet today. We saw one PIPL feeding on a mud flat on the NW side of the inlet near the bridge. Another interesting winter visitor was a pair of Purple Sandpipers feeding in the rocks on the SE side of the inlet along with a few Dunlins for comparison.
