This year is just flying by for me out here and it's hard to believe it's already November. More birds are coming back every day, including a few Laysan albatross. The female Short-tailed albatross on Eastern Island still hasn't shown up yet, but we're hoping she will soon. We had no flight this past week, so it has kind of been business as usual out here.
Our rain catchment area was cleaned out this week. The algae gets pretty thick in there so it has to be cleaned out every year or two.
The naupaka bushes in front of the office were trimmed, so we have a better view of the old sperm whale skeleton.
