Nest #02A in Todd Pover’s Plover Park is getting ready to crack open and spill adorable piping plover chicks all over the beach. You are invited to watch along live on The Little Egg Cam.
Starting around noon today, I will attempt to stream the camera for a few minutes every hour on the hour to monitor the hatch. I’ll leave those clips up until the next stream and add some comments below about what we are seeing.
This is the nest of Octavius Rex and Jennifer Jason Leigh. While Giantsbane and Myrtle were total pros, remember that this is Octavius Rex’s first nest. Can he pull off a successful hatch? I’m guessing “yes” as Jennifer Jason Leigh is a Barnegat Light legend. She’s got this.
Follow along at The Little Egg Cam over the next day or two.
And while we wait, don’t forget to read up on the brief histories of Octavius Rex and Jennifer Jason Leigh so you know who you are dealing with.
