Nesting Greater White-Fronted Goose Study at CD-5 NPRA, 2013-2019 Synthesis Report

We report here the results of the White-fronted Goose nesting study conducted in 2013–2015, 2017, and 2019. The specific objectives of this study were to:

  1. record the abundance, distribution, and fate of nests of White-fronted Geese and other large waterbirds, and evaluate the relationships of these variables to distance to potential disturbance sources and the phases of development;

  2. monitor a sample of nesting Whitefronted Geese for changes in incubation behavior that may result from activities at the CD-5 development; and

  3. identify changes in the occurrence and frequency of nest predators among all phases of development.
