A Piping Plover walks among small rocks and other debris on Revere Beach just north of downtown Boston. Kim Nagy of Brighton, Massachusetts, shot the photo in mid-June 2014 with a Canon 7D and a 100-400mm lens. She lay on the sand to be eye level with the bird.

Revere Beach, America’s oldest public beach, is a three-mile-long strand in the town of Revere. In April 2011, we featured it as Hotspot Near You No. 110. Piping Plover began nesting at the north end of the beach a few years ago. Nagy says the bird she photographed had chicks nearby.
