Headed to the beach this weekend? Fill in any holes dug while building sandcastles or burying a little brother. Small fledglings like piping plover may fall in and not be able to get back out. Ruts from vehicles are also obstacles for the tiny chicks

This American Robin is “anting” — letting ants swarm all over its body! While it isn’t fully understood, most experts agree anting has to do with transferring the ants’ secretions to the bird’s body — kind of like an avian spa treatment.
