The Ancient Murrelet season ends and the Sapsuckers begin

Unfortunately, it was another slow season for Murrelet chicks. Chick work ended on May 31stwith a total of 104 chicks this season. This number is lower than last years total of 129 chicks. The continued decline in the population on Limestone Island is most likely due to a number of factors including the raccoon, which has not yet been caught.
