T-Rex, piping plovers and Godzilla

Tyrannosaurus was a carnivore. It lived in the Cretaceous period and inhabited North America. Its fossils have been found in places such as Texas, Nebraska, Montana and Little East Beach South Dartmouth, Massachusetts.

 

Named for its melodic mating call, the piping plover (Charadrius melodus) is a small shorebird, one of several plovers in the Americas that shows a single black neck-band in breeding plumage. Its combination of a short and stout bill, pale upperparts and orange legs are key to its identification.

Because they need a very specific habitat to thrive, piping plovers are an indicator species for barrier beaches like Little East Beach in South Dartmouth, Massachusetts.

A “few” years before the Audubon Society was established a group of cavemen formed the buga buga “save the T-Rex” club.  This select assembly of cavemen “only” noticed that the T-Rex population was diminishing at an alarming rate and thought it was in the best interest of all to save them.

One artistic caveman started painting pictures of the Rex on cave walls.  Others roped off areas that they were known to roam.  They seduced young “interns” to keep track of couples, births and those less fortunate.  The interns were in play because if they were eaten the club could easily replace them.  While back at the headquarters the members would reap the benefits of land, cash donations and subsidies from the buga buga government.

Visitors to the cave art museum and interns continued to be eaten but all was good for the charter members of the club.  That is until one of their own was carried away by a T-Rex and presumed eaten.

The club reluctantly abandoned the “Save the Rex” campaign and contracted with Godzilla’s agent to eliminate the species.  The club members then became what we now know as the Democrat Party.

I swear the Audubon is made up of blue blooded constipated Republicans that have convinced our government to fund the care of endangered species.  THE PIPING PLOVERS for one.

They have roped off a good part of our beach and patrol up and down with armed interns that would sooner feed you to the blue fish than talk to you.

I plan to ask the head of Allens Pond Sanctuary

at our next beach meeting if they, Audubon, would continue to protect the plovers if our government (tax payers) pulled their financial support.

I think I’ll call Godzilla’s agent to see if the big guy will go with me.  In the mean time George has some insight into endangered species.

 

I am happy to report (seriously) that two of the four plovers eggs on our property have hatched and the little ones are fearfully  guarded by mommy and daddy plover.
