Spring 2015 saw for the first time in over 80 years a pair of PIPL’s nest and lay eggs on Hanlan’s Point Beach on Toronto Island. Unfortunately on June 23, 2015 after a night of thunderstorms the nest was found submerged in water. However; this pair went on to nest successfully in Jefferson County NY and successfully fledged one chick. This was the first time in more than 30 years for this area. It is hoped they will return to the area this spring.
