Birds Close Popular N.C. Fishing Beach
I am a little behind posting this story but here it is. The Pilotonline.com and several other papers report on the North Carolina Department of Wildlife's closure of the popular fishing beach Cape Point on the Outerbanks. The closure is a measure to protect a small group of nesting shore birds. A group called the Defenders of Wildlife based out of Washington, DC threatened to sue the state of North Carolina if they did not close the area. The beach should reopen once the Piping Plovers fly away. I hope they don't nest on your house.
