A nest trap designed for ground nesting birds, specifically Snowy Plovers (Charadrius alexandrinus), is described. The trap is inexpensive to construct, easy to operate, and lightweight for ease of use under field conditions. The trap is designed to operate most efficiently under lightly or non-vegetated habitats, typical of Snowy Plover nesting sites.
