BOSTON (CBS) – Parts of Revere Beach have been roped off and closed in order to protect endangered birds.

Officials are aiming to protect the nests of Piping Plovers, which are small sand-colored birds that often nest on the coastal areas of North America.

Jack Clark, who works with the Audubon Society, said they put fences and signs up a few weeks ago when they realized that Revere Beach was home to the nests of 18 of these birds.

Clark says the fact that 18 Piping Plovers have nests on Revere Beach is an indication of how clean Boston Harbor has become.

Al Campello works on Revere Beach Boulevard and he doesn’t like what he’s seeing.

“They have snow fences and everything. It’s really bizarre,” said Campello.  “It looks like Bosnia.”
