Throughout this winter, I had hoped to hear if any of the birds were seen back in the Bahamas. Imagine my excitement when I received an e-mail from Peter Doherty (one of the banders) on March 1st, informing me that one of the Piping Plover's that I had photographed at Breezy Point was seen and photographed in the Bahamas on February 23rd 2011.
The bird was seen and photographed by David Jones off North Andros Island of The Bahamas. David has photographed other banded Piping Plovers at the same location, which could be seen at his Pbase site. Now, the watch begins to see if any of these Piping Plovers make it back to the coast.
