Flash - egg news

Lola on nest yesterday, 5/16, eating dinner
The note I received last week from Barbara Loucks at the DEC began:
    Yes, we will be collecting the eggs this Wednesday. We have a very busy day planned but will squeeze it in in the am.

. I was at the model-boat pond at 7:30 a.m. yesterday, thinking I might catch a sight of the DEC team scooping up the eggs. But I saw Lola sitting peacefully, and no sign of action. Perhaps it's too early , I thought and so went on with warbler-watching.

But it doesn't look like it happened, based on photos posted today on, with Pale Male & Lola carrying on normally on the nest.Perhaps the rainstorm interfered with the DEC's schedule yesterday

I'll keep you posted as soon as there is any news.
