Daylight Nest Emergence

Relocated nest at 51st Ave N, Cherry Grove.   Thursday morning, Day 52,  crack and slight depression

6:30 PM...Sand has fallen with deep hole in the back

7PM,  Hatchlings start to emerge

Within 10 minutes, emergence is through, all that remains is a huge hole

Sun is setting.  Hatchlings have completed the first leg of what we hope is a long journey....

A huge thanks to Corrina, Karen, Mary and all others who contributed pictures and videos!

A rare night on NMB
