Shorebirds and Seabirds

Habitat:

  • Forested and herbaceous wetlands; fresh, brackish, and saline waters

Survey Season:

  • Check FNAI species profile to determine breeding season

Survey and Monitoring Protocol*:

FNAI Species Profiles:

*Survey and monitoring protocols may follow species with similar nesting habitats. Ground nesting shorebirds may nest in alternative sites such as gravel rooftops, freshly dredged areas, cleared construction sites, etc. Therefore, surveys must be conducted in natural and artificial habitats. Construction and dredge sites should have a biological monitor to record and report any nesting attempts.
