    Piping plover nests are shallow scraped depressions about the size of a fist and often lined with light colored pebbles and shell fragments. The eggs are well camouflaged and blend extremely well with their surroundings. The nests are susceptible to be accidentally stepped on or crushed by people and vehicles. The presence of people also may cause the birds to desert the nest, exposing eggs or chicks to the sun and predators.
