More wind and rain today. We still couldn't do any chainsawing or tropic bird banding, so it was an inside work day. I feel sorry for our volunteer Lauren, who leaves Friday and has had only one sunny day since she's been here. At least the other 2 volunteers, Dana and Kristin are here for a while longer so they may get some good weather. There's not much more to report on now. So here's your picture.
This is a Bonin petrel chick. The burrow got collapsed, so it had to sit outside for a minute until it had a hole to go back to. They are little puffballs with a beak. I'm sure they have eyes, but you really can't tell.
