Potential Habitat for Beach-Nesting Birds in New Jersey
Habitat for beach-nesting bird species such as piping plover, black skimmer, least tern, and American oystercatcher, is shrinking in New Jersey due to a number of threats, including coastal development, human disturbance, and non-native predators. To help municipalities and other beach landowners set aside important habitat for a set of priority species, scientists used distribution models for piping plover to identify areas that have the highest probability of nesting occurrence in the state.
