Friday, September 2 Inventory Nest 19

Our Friday walkers braved the rain to check nests and
inventory Nest # 19 before the rain became too heavy.
Nest # 19 emerged on August 30, Day 53 of incubation.
We found 55 hatched eggs
44 unhatched eggs, two of those were pipped. No hatchlings
dead or alive.  54% success.
We didn't make many pictures due to the rain. 
Steve H., Arlene, Leslie, Keela, Jingle, Larry and our
guest SCDNR rep, Caitlyn, were thoroughly soaked!!
Thanks for the two pictures, Leslie
