Piping Plover nest

USGS scientists are working to model shorebird habitat availability both today and in the future, given processes like sea-level rise, in an effort to support the efficient management of beaches for both people and nesting shorebirds. This photo shows a piping plover nest with eggs - the landscape characteristics immediately surrounding this nest was recorded in the data
