Piping Plover chicks successfully fledge at Montrose Beach for Third Year in a Row!

Nothing seems more appropriate on a blog about urban wildlife habitat than one of the most uplifting local conservation success stories – the repeated nesting and mating of Monty and Rose, Chicago’s most famous young couple. A little bit of beach in the right spot, lots of privacy, and a whole lot of careful human intervention have made it possible for one pair of long-distance travelers to make a home on the edge of the city. Now, one of their chicks has started his own family on a Lake Erie Beach. How much more is possible?
