ON THE JOB — University of Tennessee at Martin junior Kaleigh Grady of Jackson was busy at work recently checking on one of 50 bird boxes situated along the southern shoreline of Reelfoot Lake. Miss Grady is majoring in organismal biology at UTM and, as part of her studies, she works out of the UTM Research Facility off Highway 22 West. She checked on four warbler eggs in box No. 26 while standing ankle-deep in the murky lake water. She checked on the eggs while also monitoring data loggers in the bird box that monitor the temperature of the nest.
