Waties Island Nest Count

Monday, September 3, 2012

ALSO THIS MONDAY, LABOR DAY

 During the week as they walked, Truman and Dave spotted what they thought could be a depression.  We decided to check this out while we were on the beach. 
While Dave and Truman looked on,Truman's grandson and two others dug up the nest.

While digging, they came across a dead hatchling.  We all cheered as we thought we had another nest.  As it turned out, we did not.  We are thinking that maybe a ghost crab caught one of the hatchlings and dragged it to it's hole.

Barb did take the hatchling to see if a DNA study would determine to what nest this hatchling belonged.
