American Oystercatcher Working Group

Live Video of Nest in Charleston Harbor, South Carolina

July 2, 2016Shilo FeltonNews

South Carolina Department of Natural Resources partnered with Coastal Conservation League and others to put a video camera on a seabird colony in Charleston Harbor. Hundreds of brown pelicans, royal terns, sandwich terns and some black skimmers nest on Crab Bank. There is an American Oystercatcher nest in the bottom left corner of the live feed. Two video cameras are pointed in opposite directions and the view switches every 15min. Two hours of video are saved so you can go backwards in time by moving the red dot to the left (to find the view with the oystercatcher nest). Enjoy!
