Half-buried tires provided protected hiding places for chicks which continued to use these sites until fledging

Detailed Description

Researchers from the PWRC pioneered the use of artificial structures such as half-buried tires and wooden nest boxes to enhance the nesting habitat, decrease competition for nest sites with Common Terns, and increase the productivity of the Roseate Terns nesting at the USFWS's McKinney National Wildlife Refuge in Connecticut. Half-buried tires provided protected hiding places for chicks which continued to use these sites until fledging.
