Chicago music-in-the-park festival may be moved away from endangered plover beach after chicks hatch
Mamby on the Beach, the music festival that headed north and collided with the species-saving efforts of two federally endangered birds on Montrose Beach, is about a month away. But the piping plovers who have made the beach their summer home may not be going anywhere anytime soon.
On Wednesday night, a tiny plover chick was spotted on the beach. Two more hatched Thursday.
