Nest 90

Pat & Valerie Luzadder called in an apparent wild nest located 100 yards short of the point. They found 5 live hatchlings, 9 dead hatchlings and 44 broken shells in an area away from any previously identified nests. Judy Morr and Terry Fansler evaluated the nest which had been predated by raccoons and decided to relocate the remaining eggs to give them a chance to hatch without further raccoon predation. It turns out that the nest matches a false crawl reported on June 19th. It is likely that the raccoon found the nest when it began to hatch.
