October 3, 2023 – Nest #78, 75th Day

We Inventoried Nest #78 last evening, the 75th Day.  The King Tides definitely had an impact on the nest.  There were 84 unhatched, partially developed eggs.  One of those had been split open, probably by a crab.  It was not developed enough to have pipped on its own.  Team 3 rallied through and did what needed to be done!  Thank you, Team 3!
