#30 Snowy Plover
Easy to miss but hard to forget, the tiny sand-colored Snowy Plover perfectly blends into its surroundings, such as Pacific Coast beaches and interior salt flats. They forage in a stop-start manner higher up the beach rather than by the water’s edge, and for their nests they make shallow scrapes in the ground. Young Snowy Plovers leave the nest within 3 hours of hatching and begin foraging on their own almost immediately.
Bird Collective will donate 20% of the net profits from this patch to the Yurok Tribe of northern California as it works to restore and protect the Snowy Plover’s coastal habitat.

All embroidered bird patches have an iron-on backing, but the adhesive is temporary. For durability, we recommend sewing or using a permanent, flexible fabric glue.
