New Piping Plovers at Montrose Beach!

Over at Montrose Beach the city is welcoming 3 new residents to the area. Meet Searocket, Prickley Pear, and Wild Indigo, the 3 new Piping Plovers at Montrose Beach.

These three new Piping Plover chicks were released into the wild a couple weeks back at the protected Montrose Point Bird Sanctuary.

This was done in an effort to aid the species in its recovery, with this release being the first one of its kind in the whole state of Illinois. Four other Plovers are planned to be released later this month at the Illinois State Park in Zion.
