Tuesday Recap

We had 3 new nests bringing the total to 56. All three were in Zone 3 and all were relocated to higher ground. For those interested in the egg count...NEST 54 had 112 with 100 relocated, NEST 55 had 152 with 151 relocated, and NEST 56 had 105 with 103 relocated. Zone 2 had one NNC and Zone 5 this morning was surprised by a turtle leaving the beach, despite this mamas best efforts with 3 body pits and at least one abandoned chamber the end result was a NNC.

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.
