Nest #8 status and archive, 2013-14
Dec 2, 2013 Banded male #4944 has lost his eggs in a penguin scuffle (see Journal entry Dec 2, 2013). It was not the Skuas, but other penguins that caused the eggs to scatter.
We have started with a new nest, a 14 year old banded female # 1902. The male has been named Jackson by Lorraine Leo's class in Jackson School, Newton, MA. The female is Mordovia, named by Mikhail Timonin's students in the Tarkhanovo Secondary School, Republic of Mordovia, Russia. This pair has never been in our study, but they have rasied chicks in the past on this exact nest site. We hope they do well this year too.
