The overall objective of this effort is to assess the status and distribution of colonial waterbird species nesting in the Coastal Plain of Virginia. Information collected is intended to (1) be integrated into biological databases to be used in the environmental review process and (2) provide information for comparison to past and future surveys for the purpose of assessing long-term population trends.
