Seasoned ATV driver Tim M found his second nest this morning and is now neck and neck with novice driver Lynn P who also has two nests.  Place your bets on who will get a trifecta!!

Second nest for seasoned ATV driver Tim M!

What do ATV drivers look for? A beautiful crawl like this one found by Tim

The nest was found in short order.  Once Tim B found the nest he jumped in with a two handed dig!!

Two handed Tim B!

While we take measurements, dig for eggs and install monitors many visitors stop to look and chat.
