Know Your Coastal Birds
There are a number of magnificent birds that visit Martha’s Vineyard throughout the year. Many avian species stop here during their annual migration. This is a prime location for them to rest as they make their way north for breeding season, or as they make their way south to return to their wintering grounds. Some of these birds also prefer to stay on the Island during their breeding season to rear their chicks here. The birds on this sign may look different throughout the year. This resource aims to share the various plumages of these migratory birds!

About our Beach-Nesting Efforts
BiodiversityWorks works with private landowners, beach associations, and land trusts to monitor and protect birds. We collaborate with other conservation organizations on Martha’s Vineyard to ensure that all beaches and small islands with suitable nesting habitat are monitored and protected along the island’s 124 miles of shoreline.
