Crawl, nest and hatch

Non nesting crawl found in front of day use area in zone 2. Mama hit a tree stump, and decided she was done for now. Nest 20 in zone 3 had an explosion of babies, so a nest inventory will be upcoming, keep an eye out for that announcement. Nest 139 was found out in zone 4, mama half destroyed one of the dunes, making her nest. Great day today, inching closer and closer to the record!

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.
