Abstract: Populations of black oystercatchers and pigeon guillemots were depressed after the EVOS. Black oystercatchers and pigeon guillemots are common on fox free Shumigan Islands that have appropriate nesting habitats. Populations on islands where arctic foxes have been introduced may experience growth if the foxes are removed.
USFWS personnel will remove introduced foxes from two Shumigan Islands, Simeonof and Chernabura. The response of oystercatcher and guillemot populations to fox removal will be monitored. Follow up will be necessary in 1995 to determine whether any foxes survived and to record 1995 bird counts.
