Piping Plover range

The Piping Plover is a shorebird and can be found in the central states and the Canadian provinces in North America. The ones found in the central regions are listed as endangered. This is because they have lost all the available sandy shores to beaches. In the last few years, there has been a sign of improvement because of the protection they are being given. During the winter months these sandpipers migrate south to the warmer tropical countries. It has been seen as a migrant in Cuba.
