Re: [nysbirds-l] Oystercatcher nest in unprotected area

2020-05-20 Thread Doug Gochfeld
For the record, American Oystercatcher has nested at this site annually for
the past 5 years or more, with the nest typically being right in the area
Gus described.

Here is a checklist with photos (by Bobbi Manian) of two recently hatched
young from this site in 2015:
https://ebird.org/checklist/S23762945

It is most excellent that they’ll have some protection for the nest this
year.

That said, the post-hatching stage seems to be the especially problematic
period of time at this site, as I don’t know that any of these successfully
hatched chicks have made it to the point of fledging/flight.

Good Birding

Hi Joe,
Thank you for bringing the NPS's attention to the nest. Do you have any idea 
how to get the NPS to reign in off-leash dogs at Plumb?

Hello all,
They had barriers up last week blocking the parking lot, they could possibly 
put those up before and after hours, I might take a drive there this Thursday 
am so I'll let everyone know. I know it is a long drive for some.
