    A few interior least terns have been recorded on islands and shoreline within the Fort Peck Reservoir. These locations are the westernmost nesting sites of the interior least tern. Interior least terns breed along the lower section of the Niobrara River, Nebraska, from Keya Paha and Rock Counties to the Missouri River.   “The recovery of the interior least tern is truly an American conservation success story,” said Margaret Everson, Principal Deputy Director of the Service. “Dozens of states, federal agencies, Tribes, businesses and conservation groups all pitched in to prevent the tern’s extinction and put it on the path to recovery, thanks to the.   With current water levels higher than normal, nesting habitat is limited along sections of the Missouri River. The endangered interior least tern and threatened piping plover lay their eggs and rear chicks on sandbars and reservoir shoreline on the Missouri River between Ft. Peck Dam in Montana and Ponca State Park in Nebraska. Effects analysis for the Missouri River Recovery Program (MRRP). This analysis will also inform several key portions of the Management Plan and the plan’s future implementation within an adaptive management framework, including, but not limited to: Conceptual Ecological Models and Hypotheses for Piping Plovers and Interior Least Terns.

The Caspian Tern has limited breeding in Montana, and although breeding does occur, specific information on the nesting habits of the species in the state is limited.

LEAST TERN & PIPING PLOVER RECOVERY PLAN INTRODUCTION The interior least tern (Sterna amillarumi and the piping plover (Charadrius melodus) are recently-discovered nesting species in southeastern Colorado (pers. comm.

Introduction. Least terns (Sternula antillarum) are colonial, fish-eating birds that nest on barren sandy substrates in open habitats on rivers and coasts (Thompson et al. ) (Fig. (Fig.1). 1).The US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) listed “interior” populations of Least Terns (ILT) as endangered due to perceived low numbers and concerns about breeding habitat loss Cited by: 6.

We assessed interior least tern population sta-tus by comparing numbers and distribution of least terns with objectives set forth in the Re-covery Plan (USFWS ) and estimating trends in least tern numbers for local breeding areas (e.g., lower Platte River, Nebraska), drain-ages (e.g., upper Missouri River), and the entire interior population.

Black Tern breeding habitat in Montana is mostly wetlands, marshes, prairie potholes, and small ponds. However, several locations are on man-made islands or islands in man-made reservoirs. Across all Montana sites where Black Terns are present, approximately 30%% of the wetland complex is emergent vegetation.
