Inventory Results and New Emergence Today

Emerged at 61 days
The inventory of Nest #6 was conducted this morning with Arlene, Linda, Valerie, Dave, Nancy and Karen Fuss helping out.  This nest had a total of 98 eggs - 91 hatched, 5 were unhatched, 1 was used for the DNA study and a ghost crab (those pesky crabs!) got one at the end of July.
