Western snowy plover
Western Snowy Plover Nesting Season: Mar 15-Sept 15

Beachgoers are urged to help recovery efforts of the threatened snowy plover by respecting seasonal beach restrictions at snowy plover beaches during the nesting season. Beachgoers will see ropes that identify sensitive nesting areas, as well as signs that identify restrictions to protect the small shorebirds. If you find an unmarked nest outside a management area in Oregon, please call Laurel Hillmann at Oregon Parks and Recreation: 503-857-9000.
