Pied oystercatcher on its nest 🥚 🥚 🥚
i was fortunate enough to help out #birdlifemelbourne’s #beachnestingbirds team on the #belfastcoastalreserve last week, recording some flight initiation distances (fids) and taking blood smears (to help look at physiological stress). this pied oyc was super keen and hardly moved when we got close - very unusual as they will normally leave when threats get too close and rely on #crypsis of the eggs to protect the nest. please be mindful of birds that may be nesting on your local beaches, and try to keep your distance from any known nests or chicks 🐥

it’s been a long while since i’ve posted because i’ve been meaning to post travel pics first from new zealand and the us, but while i have these figured i’d start posting and leave the travel ones for a throwback series later!

staff at tnc’s virginia coast reserve recently participated in the 2018 global shorebird counting program. many shorebird species are in peril as they struggle to adapt to a world impacted by climate change and human activities – but there is hope. the naturally functioning barrier island and coastal lagoon systems of the virginia coast reserve provide ideal habitats where shorebirds can nest and raise their young, refuel during long migrations, and overwinter. in fact, vcr is one of the most important places in the western hemisphere for shorebirds. our efforts to manage and protect the beaches and other coastal habitats help contribute to ensuring the resiliency of these species as they struggle to survive in a changing world. ...
