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