Shoreline Habitat Improvement Project at USACE Albuquerque District’s John Martin Reservoir
A banded plover is sited at John Martin Reservoir, April 27, 2020. Piping Plovers migrate up from the Gulf of Mexico. The banding allows the natural resources specialists to track the birds’ migration patterns and how well the fledglings survive. Tracking and monitoring the banded plovers has also proven that they also nest in other Colorado Lakes, as well as at John Martin.
