Good evening Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbird monitors and anyone 
interested,

Late last night or early this morning the pair of Piping Plovers on 
Pleasure Beach in Bridgeport hatched four young ones! This is an 
especially sensitive area, being so remote, and with beachgoers visiting 
the site now via the water taxi from the dock at 91 Seaview Avenue in 
Bridgeport. The City has been great in working with us and helping to 
educate people on and protect the birds. Our WildLife Guards program, 
which trains, mentors, and employs ten local high schools students and 
two crew leaders to monitor nesting birds and engage visitors, families, 
and friends about Pleasure Beach and its wildlife, will not start until 
July 1. If anyone could provide extra monitoring coverage for us until 
then we would greatly appreciate it!

Thank you in advance!
