August 17, 2023 – YIPEE! We have Nest #93!

Looks like our False Crawl from yesterday returned and laid today!

She tricked us by evidently turning towards the east before she dug her chamber.  Yay, Barbara for finding the eggs!

Nests #35 & #37 had some emergence overnight.  It is hard to know how many with the rain drops from the storm.  Nest #37 had a late arrival during patrol this morning.  He was a strong one!
