Audubon biologists and volunteers completed the fencing west of Holly Beach. There are about 65-70 Least Tern pairs, and almost 50 nests already! As always, some birds laid their eggs in the middle of the beach. They don’t always make the best choices. This year, we are flagging the nests with little orange flags to help drivers know where to avoid and reduce nest loss from vehicles.
The flags are about two m west of the eggs, and we are hoping the community can help us spread the word to drivers! Please go around the flags by staying south of them (closer to the water).
We really appreciate the continued support from this amazing beach community, and hope that the flags are left alone, visitors respect the birds, and we share the shore with our wildlife.
