Turtle laying eggs on the trail today

These are amazing creatures, and I love watching them swimming near my dock on the Oxbow. We often get babies swimming in our pool that need rescuing.

Goodness knows why she chose to dig a hole in the middle of the Oxbow trail. I only hope the eggs can stand the foot traffic overhead.

It would be nice to move them to safer place, but I’m not sure whether that would be a good thing to do, or not.

I live in Fairport, and my home is at The Oxbow section of The Erie Canal. I fish, have a pontoon boat and like messing in boats. (see www.mud-skipper.com). I'm retired and enjoy every day living here with my wife Carol and our two dogs.

  1. Unfortunately, it looked like a predator of some sort found the nest, and had a good meal. There were egg shells all around the hole, just a few days after I saw the turtle laying them.
