Hundreds of birds visit the salt pond, foraging on tiny red fiddler crabs. Wilson’s Plovers are among those in serious decline, due to ground nesting, which makes them vulnerable to cats, mongoose, and flooding. Other visitors include Lesser and Greater Yellowlegs, Black-bellied Plovers, sandpipers and egrets. (Photo by Robbie Lisa Freeman)
