Nest #4 Emerged!

Nothing new to report about Nest 3 this morning, but Nest 4 emerged sometime overnight right on schedule. It was 58 days old. You can see lots of tracks heading down to the ocean in Linnea's photo (thanks, Linnea). It did rain last night and the hatchling tracks are not quite as clear as they are sometimes, but there is no mistaking those lines on the beach. Might even see a few more make their way out tonight!

A couple of eggshells on the surface

 Nest #5 is only a day older that this one, so maybe even more tracks in morning...
