No ORVs. But then again, this is in an urban park in the centre of one of the largest cities in North America. Apparently, the activity around them didn't deter them from nesting.
We may be approaching this in different directions. You may feel that this activity as being a negative thing, while I see it as nothing but positive for the endangered species.
No matter where they nest, the protection of the nest is of prime importance.
According to the article:
“They are young birds from last year, which tells us that success elsewhere in the region has helped us get birds back at the Toronto Islands,” said Price. “It makes the conversation important because each site can be helpful to produce young that can re-establish at another site.”
Price said the presence of these rare birds has been enough to spur action from all levels of government, who have put up protective signage, fencing and netting around the nesting birds to protect them from predators and curious onlookers."
In reading the article, I read nothing but an positive approach on the matter and IMO that is a very good thing.
