Thursday, August 16

Last evening was another great night to see hatchlings. At 8:00, 68
hatchlings emerged from nest #19 (56 days) and then at 8:45, a hole appeared in nest #22 (52 days) and 85 hatchlings were in the water by 9:05.

Team #5…I hate it for you but nest #17 hatched during the night without
you. You can have the dedication award. Lots of tracks all the way to the
end of the runway.

Absolutely no rhyme or reasoning in incubation days this year.

Nest #16 inventory results: 9 unhatched, 2 pipped and 15 live hatchlings.
