Least Tern Nesting Colony

June 02

This sunday I visited the Least Tern nesting colony located at Huntington State Beach in Orange County. Since the Terns nest in a very popular area near Newport Beach, the entire area is fenced in to protect the nests from being trampled on by unaware beach-goers. There were more than a hundred successful nests and many with two eggs. The project is almost entirely supported by volunteers which has a few benefits including free admission to any California State Park! You can read more about the Least Tern and Snowy Plover Project here.
