You've heard of Monty and Rose, the breeding pair of rare piping plovers who had two sets of eggs at Montrose Beach this summer, exciting bird watchers and attracting volunteers to guard their babies.
Now they're in a documentary, called (what else) Monty and Rose. According to its website, "Monty and Rose tells the story of a pair of endangered piping plovers that successfully nested at Chicago's Montrose Beach in the summer of 2019, the first of the species to nest in Chicago in 64 years. The short, independent documentary chronicles these special birds and an unpredictable series of events including a proposed music festival that propelled the birds to national headlines."
