August 25, 2013 ~Brett at work~

As many if not all of you know by now Brett works at Plymouth Long Beach during the Summer. He also volunteers at the National Wildlife Marine Center in Buzzards Bay once a week, more on that later as a future post.

Brett’s main responsibility is to protect endangered Shore birds such as the Tern, and the Piping Plovers, on occasion he is able to photograph these beautiful and Federally Endangered species, As of late he has talked about the Black Skimmers, a coupled pair of Shore Bird that occupies the Beach he protects. They are a beautiful bird. Fell free to visit the links below to learn more…
