Two nests in one day!  Good news for turtles and ATV rider Paul K.  Nesting responders for Nest 7, Cathy and Kyle D., made short work of finding the eggs, taking all the measurements, collecting the DNA, and installing temperature data loggers. Cathy describes the crawl as “wonky zigzagging and a little shimmy in the body pit.”   But even those shenanigans didn’t slow them down!

Kyle D finds the eggs on the third hole.
