• FOHI Turtle Team

Sunday was a Beautiful Morning with Dolphins Swimming Along the Coast.

Signs of emergence were present in Zone 2, at Nest # 13 and Nest # 15. Both nests had some little baby tracks to the sea. Zone 2 also had tracks of a non nesting mama turtle just South of the camp ground. She came up, tried to nest 4 times, leaving a dug body pit and thrown sand in 3 other areas before she returned to the sea. Footprints and dog prints were present which may have impacted her decision to go back out to ocean. Zone 3 had Nest # 2 boil last night leaving a perfect runway of many little tracks to the ocean. Zones 1,4, 5 and 6 had no activity.

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.
