Banded Bird #76634 – Female
This banded female is new to our study. She is 5 years old and was last seen in the colony in 2019. She and her mate are in the same breeding group as Nest #5, but have a much stronger nest with many rocks near by to fend off the Skuas. The pair are Laker and Snowflake, named by the students in Mary-Catherine Irving’s class at the Boys Latin School, Baltimore, MD.
Both eggs were laid Nov 23, 2022.
Jan 2, 2023 I have given up on thes eggs. It has past the time to hatch. Perhaps it was not fertilized, perhaps it got cold, maybe they slightly craked early and died. No way to tell. We will ontinue to watch the nest.
