From March to September, Wilson's Plovers lay their eggs and raise their young on the shoreline of Canaveral. Potential breeding adults select a territory and defend it. They nest on the open sand and if disturbed the birds may abandon nesting. Their eggs and chicks are camouflaged; so they can be easily stepped on. To reduce loss and disturbance, we ask for your support.

  • Avoid wrack lines and dune vegetation areas, if birds are near
  • If you hear warning calls or see a broken wing display, move away - see video to the left
