NEST volunteers faced the blow of Tropical Storm Chris this am to respond to lucky NEST 13. The wind obscured tracks and flattened the nest but under John’s leadership six new responders met the challenge. Jo found her first nest on her very first try.

Jo not only found the nest but took care of DNA egg and had time to text. We love those multitaskers bring em on!

Josh and Thomas dug for the nest and moved eggs to make way for the temperature data logger.
