Terns & Cormorants

OPB | Oct. 23, 2008 1:30 p.m.

A grand experiment ten years ago attempted to save endangered salmon from feasting Caspian terns. We return to East Sand Island near the mouth of the Columbia River and find it seems to have worked. Except now there’s a new danger from an even larger group of double-crested cormorants who have moved in.
