Probably the same pair raised 2 chicks on the north beach last year. They had 3 eggs this year but there was only one chick walking around behind the parents. As of last Tuesday, May 12th, the nest still had three eggs. Today folks observed an armadillo wandering around in the dune area.

This morning, after more beach time, I went to the other end of Tybee to look for gray kingbirds. I did not find them at the hotel - formerly Ocean Plaza Resort, now Hotel Tybee. However, when I drove down Tybrisa Street, there on the wire was a single gray kingbird. Hooray!
