Thursday Report

Zone 2 had a nest. The mother came on the beach in front of the camp store. When she left the nest she hit a tidal pool and followed it to the groin some way away from the nest. Zone 3 had a nest that was a bear to find! But it was found and moved. The zone had another possible nest ~ a very large body pit, sand thrown all around. After many attempts to find the nest it wad decided the mother would hit the hard pan and give up, shift over and try again, and again! Finally she gave up. Several false crawls were also found.

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.
