Description

These babies were found deep inside Battery Harker at 1896 Fort Mott. I guess mom thought if the fort was strong enough to protect the mouth of the Delaware River during war it was surely strong enough to protect her babies and their little Home Tweet Home. This nest was in a dark area in one of the little dugout pieces of wall that I think were used for a candles to light the path to the artillery.
