Hobcaw: Steven had a long, busy morning with 2 natural nests and 1 false crawl!

HOB02 Natural – north #18mm   

HOB03 Natural – north #9mm

HOBFC10  south #11mm

DEB 1 HOB 3 SCUTE 15 SC 608

5-23-22 X marks the body pit of HOB02 where Steven located the egg chamber.
5-23-22 Steven protected HOB02 with a staked screen and recorded the nest data on the sign.
5-23-22 HOB03 was laid up on a dune but has no background. At hatch time we will surround the back of the nest with black landscape material. This will keep the hatchlings from crawling toward the marsh and will head them toward the ocean.
