¿Cómo se dice "beach bird" en español?

Estoy buscando la traducción al español de la siguiente oración: "This little chick is a beach bird. Its nest is right in the sand. But the beach is not always a safe place to be."

Por favor, ayuda.

    Hola:

    Se supone que ofrezcas tu intento de traducción.

    Tomando el texto tal cual: Este polluelo es un ave de playa. Su nido se encuentra justo sobre la arena. Pero la playa no siempre es un lugar seguro.

    Saludos,
    Enrique

    Chick and bird are both informal words for a girl e.g. a beach bird is a girl who loves sunbathing. You can't translate the pun so have to go with the literal translation but the sentence makes more sense if you understand the play on words.

    Indeed. I thought it might be a pun, but the context wasn't enough for me to determine it was. The literal sense worked, but I had my doubts. I had never heard "beach bird" in reference to someone who sunbathes, though. I guess one never stops learning. :)

    Then it would be: "Esta chica es un ave de playa..."

    Saludos,
