Productive Tuesday

Five more nests were found by Tuesdays crew, we have been quite blessed this year as this brings our total to 19 for the season! Nest 76 was found by Jennifer and her team with one lucky probe. Nest 76, with 124 eggs, was located in Zone 2 just past the first flag pole on the beach and the decision was made to be relocate due to its position below the known high tide line. Zone 2 also had Nest 77 found by Denise and her crew right at the Zone 2/3 cutoff; this nest was left INSITU. Zone 3 had one nest, Nest 78, found by Dan's team also left INSITU. Nest 79 was found in Zone 1 and was relocated due to location, 122 eggs are now safe from the upcoming King tides. Last but not least Nest 80 was located in Zone 6 and also relocated to a safer location away from the incoming water. Pictures courtesy of Jennifer Williams and Ruth Spencer.

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.
