Colony Status This Weekend

As of Friday evening, I haven’t heard any news of what’s happening at the colony on Sand Dollar. There may be very little activity left, or there may be birds that are still raising young.

Practically speaking, it would probably be helpful for Gulf and Lagoon stewards to coordinate on Saturday and Sunday. If people can bring cell phones, the Gulf people can let the Lagoon people know what it’s like out there before they start their stewarding day around 10:00.

If there isn’t much activity left, just hit the points of not flushing large flocks (they may be migrants who need to rest) and giving any postings as wide a berth as possible. If you can’t find out what the colony status is, don’t say there are nesting birds there, just that there may be.

I’m sorry I can’t be more specific, but just use common sense and have a good time at the beach!
