What a day!  Three nests in the south portion of our territory (Kitty Hawk to Nags head)!!  Also ATV rider Peggy B found two nests in Nags Head today!!  Congratulations Peggy!!

Nest 21. See fox tracks all over body pit. The team will add a predator guard later today.

More fox tracks on top of the crawl.

The nest was relocated as it is in a problem area in Nags Head prone to erosion.

The eggs were found in just a couple of tries!

Team 21 on a very hot day. Thanks for all your hard work!!
