Five Common Moorhen eggs in a nest right next to the boardwalk in the back section by the crossed logs.

The Common Moorhens are normally very prolific and raise several broods a season.

But last year they produced few young, partly I suspect because low water levels made it easy for Racoons to range the wetlands to poach their eggs.

This season the water levels are higher and I'm hopeful that the Common Moorhens will have a better year.
