Abstract:
The Prothonotary Warbler, a brilliantly colored orange-yellow bird with a distinctive song, summers among Eastern North Carolina's coastal woodlands, swamps, and rivers. It winters in Central and South America. Warblers nest in cavities in small trees, usually a few feet from water in streams, in swamps and wet woodlands. This has a dangerous side, though, because flooding can cause substantial nest failure each year.

Abstract:
Sea turtles, especially the most common one--the loggerhead--that live along the state's coast are becoming threatened and in need of help by mankind. This presents an ironic situation because humans, the only group with the skills to help turtle survive, are also the group that inflicts the most harm to them. For example, plastic bottle strips tossed into the ocean where turtle get entangled or eat them and large gill nets used by fishermen all are threats to the turtles.
