There are several species nesting on the Vineyard whose abundance has not been documented this year.
By all accounts the breeding season is in full swing. The shorebirds that nest on our beaches and marshes are escorting their chicks around.
The populations of nine of the 10 species of warblers that breed on the Island are declining.
Carolina wrens were scarce in the Martha’s Vineyard Breeding Bird Survey, conducted on June 7 by Matt Pelikan.
The breeding season for birds is now in high gear. We have over 100 species that nest on the Island.
Watching the terns that are nesting on Little Beach in Edgartown is spectacular.
