We've got babies!

We're excited - we have been watching mommy and daddy plover (the masked lapwing) sitting on their nest on the grassy area in front of The Boathouse for the last few weeks, and yesterday we saw that a couple of eggs had hatched. We counted 2 chicks yesterday, and a third one today. It's interesting to note that the chicks are born with a full covering of down and are able to leave the nest and feed themselves just a few hours after hatching.

Plover hatchlings out and about almost immediately.

Ever-watchful parents.
