I don't know the age of this bird but it is older than I hoped to find. I had less luck this year than in the past as more of the beach area has been roped off during the nesting season. This was taken at extreme low tide; the baby was part of a group of 6 piping plovers. However, my main concern is the cloudy condition I found when I arrived at the beach an hour before sunset. These were taken at 1/400 5.6 at iso 1000 due to the darkening sky. Nikon D300 400 2.8VR with 1.7 tc.
