|Looks just about perfect!|
The nest was about 18" deep which is about average. We found that the top egg in the nest was already broken so it was used for the DNA sample.

Definitely a group effort this morning - measuring tracks, taking GPS readings, counting the eggs as they were moved, collecting the DNA sample, installing markers, taking more measurements and recording all the data in a notebook. Thanks to everyone for helping make this a successful morning.
