The Four Brother Islands are four islands with a total of 14.2 acres. These islands were once the home to a healthy and diversified bird population, but most vegetation is now dead from an over-population of cormorants, and a significantly smaller variety of species remain on the islands today. It is a bird sanctuary for the benefit of the gulls and under the management of the Nature Conservancy.
