Snowy Plover (Charadrius nivosus) on Sanibel Island, FL. Snowy Plovers are listed as endangered in the state of Florida and only approximately 200 nesting pairs remain in the state, 10% of which nest on Sanibel Island. The decline of Snowy Plovers is in a large part due to development of beachfront property.
