Conduct a three-year study of water bird (including shorebirds and waders) use of the North Basin in Eastshore State Park in order to determine waterbird response to disturbance. Experimental studies will include six trials using non-motorized watercraft to determine how such disturbance affects distribution, abundance, and behavior of waterbirds within the basin.
