Subject: American Oystercatchers at Jekyll Point
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
I have begun this year's Operation Plover Patrol with a simple survey set around high tide. This survey will help me see what kind of disturbance the large flock of birds has to cope with as they are resting. Two volunteers are helping me. Both surveyors have come back with stunning numbers of birds gathered at Jekyll Point (the south end of Jekyll). They both report between 65 to 100 American Oystercatchers. I went down on Thursday and sure enough my group had about 65 American Oystercatchers. There were also 5 Wilson's Plover. One pair of plovers was in the same place they nested last year.
