Old Orchard Beach Announces Plan To Protect Endangered Birds From Fireworks 

Officials in Old Orchard Beach say the town has come up with a plan to hold several days of fireworks displays while also protecting several groups of piping plovers nesting on the beach.

Old Orchard Beach Town Manager Larry Mead says the town met Tuesday afternoon with Maine Audubon and state wildlife officials, and will identify where the birds are before the fireworks shows begin.
