Eastern Island

This morning Greg, Forest, Kim, and I went to Eastern Island to survey the plant situation over there. We found pretty much the plants we expected over there. This afternoon was an inside day. We went over some more plant information, too bad I didn't get all of this a year ago.
I've only got 2 days left on Midway. So I hope all of you daily blog readers will find something else that can keep you busy for 2 minutes a day.

Brown noddies are on an old ironwood stump.


I haven't put a picture of a frigatebird chick yet, so here it is with its mom.


Here's a Laysan albatross on the south side of Eastern Island.

Pete -

It's been such a pleasure to visit your blog during your time on Midway. I hope you start a new blog and I hope somebody on the island will try to fill your shoes (hard task).

Kind regards,

Peggy

Hey Pete -

Just wanted to wish you well... I've just escaped from my remote field camp here in the Queen Charlottes to enjoy a week off in town. Couldn't help but wonder what you guys have been up to and found myself checking out your blog. Have managed to track down a lead on a beach volleyball up here... won't be the same no doubt -people wearing tuques (winter hats), no goonies and maybe less cheating. Happy trails Pete. Please pass on a huge hello to everyone.
