Nest #7 status and archive, 2016-17

This female is 10 years old and although has been seen in the colony the last two years, she has not had a successful nest. Let's watch her as she tries this year. The first egg was laid on Nov 10. They are in the Cliff breeding group, a large group at the north end of the colony with many successful breeders. The second egg was seen on Nov 13.
