PIPL Summary:   Bodie Island Spit currently has two active broods (one brood with two chicks and the other brood with three chicks and one egg still being incubated).  Adults and fledglings are still being observed at Cape Point.  The PIPLs observed on North Ocracoke are thought to be migrants.  On South Point one fledgling continues to be observed and one nest is still active.  Many migrants are passing through the South Point area.  One PIPL, banded in the Bahamas, was observed on South Point on 7/12 and then seen again on 7/15.

PIPL Summary:   Migrants are beginning to pass through the area so it is no longer possible to distinguish the breeding birds from the migrants.  One PIPL, banded in the Bahamas, was observed on South Point on 7/12.  As for the known breeders on Bodie Island Spit, there is still one active nest and one brood with two chicks.  Adults and fledglings are still being observed at Cape Point; however, breeding appears to be finished for the season in this area.  No PIPL breeding activity has been observed this week on North Ocracoke.  On South Point one fledgling is still being observed and one nest is still active.
