July 10 – Turtle rescue & phoebe  
Tuesday, July 16 – I spooked them and they flew off.



Today, April 28th, 2019, I spotted the beginnings of a nest in the shed!

May 13th, female on the nest. A bit chilly, so I left her alone.
Four eggs, May 15th.


The eggs are due to hatch somewhere around May 26th, to fledge around June 13th.
They hatched on May 29th. I checked them June 6th, and they were gone. I don't think they fledged. I know we have critters in the area.
