Plovers are found throughout North America. There are at least six species of plovers seen in Cuba. The American Golden-Plover, Black-bellied Plover, Piping Plover, Semipalmated Plover, Snowy Plover and the Wilson's Plover are native to the North American Continent.
Once considered a game bird, the plovers were under threat from hunting. Today, the plovers are facing another kind of threat, which is the loss of their habitat. Development of wetlands and the ever-expanding use of sand beaches for recreational use is affecting their feeding and nesting grounds.
