People Inside Habitats

Ormond Beach, Oxnard California

The trail camera we put on our tern nest captured a lot of human activity inside the nesting habitat. The habitats are surrounded by mesh fencing and have signs that explain the closure during nesting season. Yet people still persist in disobeying the signs. We are extremely fortunate we haven't had a nest stepped on this year. The video below starts with the tern settling on it's nest and cuts to 3 different close calls this nest had with getting stepped on. Note the time stamp on the bottom right of the camera frame. This all happened within a 2 day period.
