The recent floods of the Missouri River have not only displaced people, but also wildlife.
Federally threatened piping plovers typically nest on open, elevated sandbars in several of Nebraskaâ€™s river systems, including the Missouri.
Because of the high water on the Missouri River, the sandbars where these birds establish nests are under water, leaving them with no nesting habitat. In order for these birds to produce a successful clutch, they had to find suitable nesting habitat somewhere else.
