Monitored Nesting Sites & Threatened Species Habitat

by Jane Ahrens

The week of April 20, 2015, James and Bob Rogers helped Island Naturalist Justine Kibbe put the finishing touches on new Critical Habitat signage to be placed along Big Stony Beach and the south side of Elizabeth Field Airport runway.

Justine has documented returning Oyster Catcher pairs in both locations these past three years. Oyster Catchers monitored up east call Hungry Point, East Harbor, and the stony shores north across from Money Pond their “summer homes”as well.

Please be aware and respectful by treading more lightly in these locations during this nesting season.

A Fishers Island Community Center Program and the accompanying Fog Horn eNewsletter serve as the communications resource for the Fishers Island community. The content – news, calendar, links and photos, milestones, ads, and more create a clear image of Fishers to those on and off the island.
