The Georgia Department of Natural Resources says the state’s first loggerhead nest of 2014 was found on Friday at Cumberland Island.
Wildlife biologist Doug Hoffman of the National Park Service reported the nest, which was made during the day. Loggerheads, the state’s primary sea turtle species, usually lay their eggs at night. But night or day, Sea Turtle Program Coordinator Mark Dodd of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources said the state usually sees the season’s first loggerhead nest about the first of May.
