We had to wait for over a week but Nest 4 finally arrived!!  Marissa and John led the way and after a little digging the eggs were found.

Well where are they???

A beautiful nest up near the dunes.  Data logger was placed, DNA collected and ground water monitoring pipe installed!

Les and Ricky working hard and discussing strategy.
