Manitoba Miracle

Some of you may have already heard or read about the Manitoba government's interview with the CBC late this afternoon:
so I can finally share the news that we have enjoyed a little bit of a Manitoba miracle this year. A pair of Piping Plover has nested successfully. This is the first Piping Plover nest in the province since 2012 and the first successful nesting attempt since 2010 here.
