Plovers & Pipers, Oh My!
with Mike Cooper

The long distance wanderings of sandpipers and plovers can capture our imaginations and stir feelings of wanderlust in us. Their abrupt appearances and disappearances on our beaches and marshes – sometimes overnight – brought nature writer Peter Matthiessen to call them “Windbirds”, Please join Mike Cooper and ELIAS for a look at some of the windbirds that visit Long Island. We’ll talk about their seasonal movements, habitat choices and about some of the threats they face in a rapidly changing world.  

Mike Cooper has been a Long Island birder and trip leader since the 1970's and currently writes the seasonal summary column for the The Kingbird, the journal of the New York State Ornithological Association. 

This program took place on June 7, 2021.
