This camera looks out on nest boxes designed to keep gulls from snatching Roseate Terns eggs at one of the largest colonies in the northeast U.S. Sometimes early in the spring, before the terns have returned to the island, the camera films a pair of American Oystercatchers taking advantage of space between the empty roosts to build their own nests.

The cam is run and monitored by Menunkatuck Audubon Society.
