Turtley Awesome Twosome!!

Updated: May 26, 2018

Wednesday volunteers were greeted this morning with two loggerhead crawls and nests. One was in Zone 3 and was located by Chris Nietert And was left in situ. Congrats Chris on your first nest as a new prober this year!! The other was just north of the Patterson cabin in Zone 4 with 120 eggs relocated to a higher and drier location. This nest was probed by Vicki Anne Nestor. Once again, the Wed team made me proud to be their co-day leader.


Our totals now stand at 4 diamond back terrapin nests all in Zone 1 and 3 loggerhead sea turtle nests. Two in Zone 3 and one in Zone 4

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.
