Oyster Catcher Nesting

Intrepid naturalist Ali sent this paper along. We have seen one nesting site on the Riding Cays in the Bight of Old Robinson, which is consistent with the paper suggesting they nest on rocky shores in the northern Bahamas.  An easy paper to read through. Thanks Ali.

About the Author:

Craig Layman
My lab’s interdisciplinary pursuits provide for a multi-faceted understanding of environmental change in the coastal realm. We are ecologists, asking questions that span population, community, ecosystem and evolutionary sub-disciplines. We often use a food web based perspective, exploring top-down (e.g., predation) and bottom-up (e.g., nutrient excretion) mechanisms by which animals affect ecosystem processes. All of our efforts are framed within a broader outreach framework, directly integrating science and education, using approaches such as this website.
