We also got a new flight contractor. I got to leave on their first flight out. I'm on vacation now in Alexandria, VA right now, so I won't be doing a blog until I get back the first week in March. I'm keeping it short this week, since I was only on Midway for 4 days. Here's some pictures.
Here's the female short-tailed albatross on the chick. It shouldn't be too much longer until the parents leave it alone to go on more foraging trips.
Our new G2 is pretty nice. It's fast too. No more 6 hour flights in the G1.
The Laysan albatross chicks are getting big too. Some of the black-footed albatross are being left alone already.
Another flying albatross.
There were 35 turtles basking on Turtle Beach this weekend.
I went and checked out some of the areas that got flooded in the big storm. All of the white dots are eggs that got washed out of the nests.
