Happy Birthday to the first chick! Late last evening, Reuben and Cherise welcomed their first chick of this season's brood. AND, if you look closely, you'll notice a hole in the shell of one of the other eggs, and it sure looks like there's movement inside...maybe we will be welcoming chick number two to the world in the very near future! After the FB Live stream ends, you can view the camera anytime at NCWF.org; LNWC.org and stutts marina.com
