Distribution and abundance of piping plovers - Results and implications of the International Census. American White Pelicans also breed at the lake in good numbers, with nests counted in The nationally endangered Piping Plover has been recorded nesting at the lake in small numbers, with a peak of 9 birds counted during the International Piping Plover census.

    Given the precarious status of the Piping Plover, the U.S. Geological Survey began an International Piping Plover Census in to help assess the effectiveness of intensive management efforts, which were soon underway. Conducted every five years, the survey is conducted on the plovers’ breeding grounds and wintering grounds.   For example, from fewer than 40 piping plovers had been seen in the entire Bahamas. However, with support from the USFWS and several other groups, the Piping Plover Census expanded greatly in the Caribbean in subsequent efforts, resulting in the discovery of over 1, piping plovers in the Bahamas in

    Winter numbers were 27% lower than those of the first international census conducted in , with substantially fewer wintering birds along the Gulf of Mexico and an overall increase in numbers along the Atlantic Coast. Large numbers of wintering plovers remain undetected.

We counted least terns (Sterna antillarum) and piping plovers (Charadrius melodus) in Nebraska during June and July, This undertaking was part of an international effort to census the threatened piping plover throughout Canada and the United States.

Census Significance To study Piping Plover population trends, this international census was established in and occurs every five years.

It is the longest running shorebird census to cover the whole breeding range of an entire species. All jurisdictions that support Piping Plovers across Canada, the U.S., and Mexico participate.

It takes place. The 1 International Piping Plover Census was designed by the U.S. Great Lakes/Northern Great Plains Piping Plover Recovery Team and carried out in coordination with the Atlantic Coast Pip- ing Plover Recovery Teams in the U.S.

and Can- ada, and the Prairie Canada Piping Plover Re- covery Team. Each recovery team leader was responsible for collecting census data from a co. The piping plover was included in a cursory 5-year review of all species listed before (56 FR ). No new information regarding piping plover status was received, nor was a change in status recommended.

This review constitutes the first species-specific 5-year review of the piping plover. The Piping Plover (Charadrius melodus circumcinctus) is listed as endangered in Canada (Boyne ), threatened in the U.S. Northern Great Plains, and endangered in the Great Lakes region of the United States (Sidle ).

The International Piping Plover Census estimated the Great Lakes and Northern Great Plains/Prairies populations at adults. Information on population trends for the interior subspecies from the International Piping Plover Census shows a long-term (–) decline of % and a short-term decline of 12% over the most recent 10 years (–) or approximately three generations.

Atlantic Region.;]. The study was part of an on-going effort that began in and continues today at 5-year intervals to provide data to assess the piping plover population status and distribution.

The breeding census in recorded a grand total of 8, adult piping plovers at 1, sites. PIPING PLOVER Charadrius melodus during the International Winter Census, 88 percent were recorded on the Gulf coast. Found along beaches from Perdido Key (Escambia County) to Dog Island and Lanark Reef (Franklin County), and from Anclote Key Plains region of southern Canada, south to Nebraska; formerly throughout.

In recognition of the International Census Year, we are thrilled to welcome back Todd Pover of Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey, along with members of Bird Studies Canada, Piping Plover Conservation in Nova Scotia and others to help us host our 2nd International Piping Plover. During the international winter census of piping plovers, birds were seen on both the Atlantic and Gulf coasts (70 and birds, respectively) (Haig and Plissner ).

If anyone sees a Piping Plover this summer in Manitoba, please contact Ken on the details below. Good day, As many of you are aware the international census began in and is conducted every five years. This year will mark the sixth census. It will take place from June Study sites were located on beaches where concentrations of plovers were found during the International Piping Plover Census.

Inplovers fledged a mean of chicks per pair (n =30), higher than the mean of chicks per pair in (n =39) and one of. To address this issue, over 1, biologists and volunteers from 10 nations collaborated in the International Piping Plover Census.

Approximately 2, sites were censused yielding the highest number of breeding (5, adults) and wintering (3, birds) Piping Plovers ever recorded. Figure 3.

The International Piping Plover Census suggested that 60% of the breeding piping plovers in Canada were in Saskatchewan (Flemming, ).

Within Saskatchewan, Lake Diefenbaker is particularly important as a breeding area.The International Piping Plover Census, which takes place every five years, is conducted in part to answer an important question: where exactly do piping plovers spend their winters?

Coverage in the Caribbean was extremely spotty during the early years of the Piping Plover Census. For example, from fewer than 40 piping plovers had.
