Honolulu Museum of Art changes plan for maintenance project to protect White Tern eggs and chicks
The plans for a maintenance project at the Honolulu Museum of Art have been changed to accommodate the many terns that use a tree in the museum's courtyard for nesting. After discovering a newly laid egg, the plan to remove the tree was put on hold. Soon after, more eggs and chicks were found in the tree. By working with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the museum has developed a new plan that will protect the eggs and chicks but still allows the tree to be removed.
