Turtle Nests: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

The Good
While walking the Vero Beach shoreline we spotted several, well more than several, we saw a lot of fresh turtle nesting sites. A first for me. We've seen their nests along the Assateague beach but never the trail from the water up into the dunes. Cool, just keep your distance.

The Bad
When I crossed this path, nowhere near the nest, a lot closer to the waves, I almost stepped on some eggs. Apparently this old girl couldn't wait until she got to her nest and started dropping eggs right there in the path.

The Ugly
On our return trip south, back towards the car, we spotted these crows and a white ibis having some scrambled eggs for breakfast. The circle of life. Hopefully there were plenty more higher up in the dunes.
