Each year we monitor numbers of pairs and nesting success for territories we’re able to locate. We suspect however, that pairs are also nesting on privately-owned waterfront areas, which are accessible only via nearby private property. This is where we need your help. Do you have AMOY nesting “in your backyard”? Anyone suspecting American Oystercatcher nesting activity on or near their property, and would either like to allow a site visit by qualified biologists, or provide documentation of the breeding activity, are urged to contact us.
