August Ecosystem Services Photo Contest Winner

Fiona Boardman: Lesser Yellowlegs are just one of the many shorebird species that utilize oyster aquaculture habitat to forage during their migrations. The birds use their long bills to capture small invertebrates from the mud. This photo was taken at Brady’s Oysters in Grays Harbor, where I am studying the foraging behavior of shorebirds in and out of oyster aquaculture.
