Due to extreme damage from Hurricane Ian on 9/28/22, there was no access to the east End Lighthouse area. As a result, no monitoring could be done of this nest. Soial media photos taken from the beach show a rebuilt nest and birds around the nest. Attempts to obtain further info have been unsucessful.

This nest is on a sturdy platform overlooking the gulf/bay and has been our most consistent producer of 2-3 chicks over many years but in 2021, there were 0 chicks.
