Nest # 2 status and archive, 2013-14
Male band #4235. This male is now 7 years old, was in our study last year and raised two chicks. He has built his nest in the same place and has a new mate. They are in a breeding group called the Home Ranch on flat ground without any protective rocks around them, but there are about 20 nesting pairs so they may be able to fend off the Skuas. His name is JJ and his new mate is Oreo, named by Sarah Hojnicki. When we arrived Nov 30, there were already 2 eggs.
