Tuesday, July 19 – Nest #2 Inventory

Nest #2 was inventoried this evening. We had a wonderful group of visitors who were blessed to see 14 live hatchlings! We are grateful for all who helped shoo the birds away, especially Marshall with his kite! (We know it’s the circle of life, but we didn’t want any children traumatized!)

Nest #2 was laid on May 12th and hatched on Day 65.  

  • Live: 14
  • Dead: 0
  • Egg Shells: 136
  • Unhatched:. 10
  • Pipped Eggs; 1
