Piping plovers, federally listed as threatened, arrive at the refuge between mid-March and early April. Before the bird arrive fencing put up on a portion of the beach area to ensure the birds have the privacy they need. Once a full clutch of eggs has been laid, the refuge erects a wire exclosure around the nest.
