Wildlife officials warn public not to disturb nests of endangered least terns

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, June 23, 2014 4:15 AM EDT

The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife is asking the public not to disturb the nest of least terns, the only endangered species that nests in Kentucky.

According to the department, least terns are nesting now on sand bars in the Mississippi River along Kentucky's western border. Once the Ohio River drops a little, they will nest there as well, from Paducah downstream.

Clean sand bars draw the least terns, but they also attract boaters, swimmers, campers and all-terrain vehicle riders.

Any human disturbance can cause the adults to abandon the nest, allowing predators to steal the eggs.

Workers have been marking nest with yellow signs when they find them. White birds circling overhead are another sign that a nest could be present.
