Eastern Island Birds

There wasn't a lot going on last week so I'll make small talk about the weather.  Once again it's been pretty chilly for Midway.  The temps have still been in the high 50's and there's been quite a bit of wind, so everyone is wearing their winter gear out here.  The chicks are getting bigger and most don't seem to be bothered by the cool weather, except the really small ones.  I only took a few photos this week and most were on Eastern Island, so here are a few of the birds over there.

The Short-tailed albatross chick is getting big.  It's about 6 weeks old now.

 The Great frigatebirds are starting their displays for nesting season on Eastern Island.  They don't nest on Sand Island.

The Masked Boobies also don't nest on Sand Island.  I only saw one nest over there this week.

This pair may be getting ready to have a nest sometime soon.

Hey, Pete!
Got a laugh at that last photo. Seen head on, it looks like trick photography since all the white around their compact faces makes it appear as though it was photoshopped. (Even though I know it's very real.)

From that photo, I'd be tempted to rename them Masked Hoodies.

Great photos!

Pete Leary said...

Those are pretty funny birds. Their look is a lot more intense than the other booby species.

I lived on Midway 1955-1957. Of course I was 7-8 at the time, but the images of flora/fauna are still vivid. Thanks for the great photos. Gooney birds rule :-)

I’m Anna by name. I live in USA, i want to use this medium to alert all loan seekers to be very careful because there are scammers everywhere.Few months ago I was financially strained, and due to my desperation I was scammed by several online lenders. I had almost lost hope until a friend of mine referred me to a very reliable lender called Mr. Larry Graham who lend me a loan of $20,000 under 24hours without any stress. If you are in need of any kind of loan just contact him now via: grahamfunds2@gmail.com, I‘m using this medium to alert all loan seekers because of the hell I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent lenders. And I don’t wish even my enemy to pass through such hell that I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent online lenders,i will also want you to help me pass this information to others who are also in need of a loan once you have also receive your loan from Mr. Larry Graham, i pray that God should give him long life.

God bless him forever.
