Abstract:
Snowy plover nest site locations collected from a 2002-2006 FWC snowy plover status and distribution study. The FWC initiated its snowy plover survey project to (1) reassess the population size and distribution of snowy plovers breeding in Florida, (2) assess the population size and distribution of snowy plovers wintering in Florida, (3) assess productivity of snowy plovers nesting on Florida beaches, and (4) conduct a review of the literature on the Cuban snowy plover.
Purpose: To document nest site locations of snowy plovers in Florida.
