Saw 10 banded plover on Wilmington -Pt Augusta rd tonight.  Reading up on
them in HAANZAB it states they are monogamous, but also reports a case of
possible nest sharing.  I assume these days with DNA testing that being
monogamous would prove to be false and that this applies to all birds.

Any comments?   Is there DNA backed evidence of monogamy?
