Regis and I recently volunteered at the GTM Reserve to download some video for a research project. We encountered a gopher tortoise going in and out of the water. I thought this was unusual because I understood they might do this to get rid of ticks. But, this tortoise wasn’t staying in the water long enough to get rid of ticks. Regis thought it might be cooling off.
On the home front, we have bluebirds nesting in a box we placed when we moved here at the end of February.
