One of the most common predators of the nests and young of our shorebirds is the Fish Crow. We also occasionally see the American Crow, and now even the Common Raven looking for a meal on the shoreline. This was an uncommonly good view of a Common Raven at Stratford Point.
The species has become widespread in the state over the past two decades. If you see any predators when monitoring, even if they are not actively engaging in trying to predate nests or young, please let us know. The more information we have, the better!
