This article discusses the suitability of human constructed, wooded impoundments located on blackwater streams as habitat for wood ducks in North Carolina.
Brown pelicans have been declining along the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts, so much so that they have been declared an endangered species. However, in North Carolina their numbers are increasing. In the last ten years, nesting pairs in the state have increased tenfold.
Wonderfully camouflaged, piping plovers are also extremely rare along our coast, numbering perhaps fewer than sixty birds.
The authors describe the brown pelican and why the bird is becoming an endangered species in the face of new environmental hazards brought on by modern man.
