A nest and 2 NNC

Updated: May 28, 2019

Nest 24 was found today in Zone 4. Unfortunately, a raccoon got to it before we did and 57 eggs were lost due to depredation. 67 eggs were safely relocated and protected. There were also 2 NNCs in Zone 3 so hopefully they return to give Tues some action. Congrats to Keith and his team on their first nest of the season!

Last Nest of this Season!

The last nest of the season has hatched. This morning Buddy and I checked it out. There were not that many tracks. Perhaps more came out earlier, but the wind blew away the evidence. More may come

A bald eagle was spotted in Zone 4

Just happened to look up and saw the eagle on the top branch of a dead tree. Since there were very few nests to check, it was a surprise to catch a look. Hope it is here to stay.
