2011: Nest #15 & #16

found by Sherry in Santa Rosa Beach Are. Loggerhead great tracks again. Nests #14, 15, and #16 are all in the same area and have keep Dawn and Sherry busy, and I will call these Cal’s nests as Dawn had to put a good dog buddy of mine to sleep on Friday afternoon and then 3 nests in a row to keep her busy. All of us with animals can sure relate to this. Love you Dawn, Love you Cal
