Sunny Sunday, Nest # 54

Nest #54 was located in Zone 4. The mama turtle left tracks and a body pit just South of where Zone 4 begins. She dug a chamber that was visibly open, but abandoned it as she apparently found too many roots and vegetation. She then decided to start again, moved up to the dune fence, left a second body pit where she laid her nest. This nest was left insitu.


Two False Crawls were found in Zone 5.

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.
