No Man’s Island

By Linda Tancs

Three miles southwest of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts is a real “no man’s land.”  Nomans Land Island National Wildlife Refuge, a one-time Naval training ground, aerial bombardment and gunnery range, is closed to all public uses due to the risk of unexploded ordnance.  But its intertidal beach, rocky shores, shrub habitat and abundant wetlands are welcoming hosts to common terns and double-crested cormorants (as well as migrating monarch butterflies).  Literally, this place is for the birds.
