Piping Plovers Take Off

Three Piping Plovers have been seen flying and that means the National Park Service can open parts of an area known as the Hatteras Spit to people and cars. The soundside beach and interior of the spit will remain closed while rangers evaluate the Plovers' behavior in those spots. The Piping Plovers, which are protected by the Endangered Species Act, hatched June 25.
