2012: Nest #62

Nest #62
Sometime durning Hurricane Isaac I got a phone call from the LifeGuards near our nest #62, didn’t know the nest number at the time. They were finding washing eggs, they wondered what to do. I told them to gather the eggs and put them into a bucket. I called Joyce and she went down and got the eggs, and reburied them, all 72, at the top of a Dune, far out of the storms way. This area we were checking daily also. Well, God, is good and these eggs hatched. The hatchlings had to slip down a large drop off but they did and went to the water. 70 of the eggs hatched, 1 was alive in the nest. and 1 was a non hatched egg. Can you believe it, I find it hard to. Great job Joyce on doing exactly what I ask you to do and making a fine second nest. So eggs can be reburied and hatch. Aren’t we lucky!
