Over on Eastern There were a few turtles and lots of seals. We also found that the short-tailed albatross returned to its usual spot. There's only one and it comes back to the same spot every year, so we're hoping this year that maybe a mate will show up.
I helped out with picking up the cinderblocks this afternoon. It's not that easy to tread water holding a cinderblock you know.
I took some good pictures today so I'll probably be giving you photos from Eastern Island for a little while.
Here's the tiger shark we saw today. It already ate the albatross.
The short-tail is hanging out with the decoys.
A close-up of the "golden gooney", as people around here call it.
This is the solar panel for running the ipod shuffle that tries to attract more short-tails. We have a couple more of these around to attract Bulwer's petrels. There were a lot of those petrels until the rats extirpated them from Midway.
