So...now a very long shot... if you know someone or live in or near North Captiva keep your eyes open for Piping Plovers and take a picture of their legs, maybe we'll be able to read it. If you know a birder in that area, please, tell him/her about our search.
It would be so neat if it was confirmed "officially".
The pictures are from Audrey Albrecht who found the Piping Plover in a group with many other Plovers. Many thanks to her and the other volunteers of the Florida Banded Bird Resightings group.
