Protecting Killdeer Eggs

FIConservancy Naturalist Justine Kibbe reported:

“As Fishers Island prepares for a very busy July and August, it’s wonderful to witness the rallying of community to protect our precious wildlife.

“Town of Southold Highway Dept. informed me of a tiny killdeer nest with a clutch of 4 delicate eggs hidden within the upland habitat of the Parade Grounds.

“Thank you to Islander Steffen Kucsera, who in the ‘busyness’ of his day, took the time to create a bit of a sanctuary and help direct truck traffic, keeping this dear Killdeer family out of harm’s way.”
