Seabird Monitoring: Tropicbirds, Saba and St. Eustatius
The Tropicbirds field monitoring was scheduled on Feb 13-21, 2013.
Adrian Delnevo visited Saba and St. Eustatius to assist in the seabird monitoring programme on both islands, ensuring that similar protocols are adopted for the Red-billed Tropicbird nest monitoring and peak attendance counts. Field work included nest site visitations and field cameras deployment for the constant image-capture monitoring of nest locations to document bird behaviour and any predation activity threatening nesting areas.
