Rainy Day

It rained most of the day again so no sunny pictures for you. Greg and I took our invasive species boss out in the field to look at things and discuss more issues. The Honolulu people all went back today since we had a plane come in. This afternoon I just took care of some paperwork and data entry so nothing too exciting. So here's some pictures from Eastern Island yesterday.
Here's a few of the Laysan ducks.

These are short-tailed albatross decoys. These birds are endangered and one comes back every year. By having these decoys, we're hoping that maybe another one will stop by also so they start nesting here. We also have a little solar powered ipod that plays their calls. The one bird probably won't be back until sometime in October.

Just the one short tailed albatross visits the island? That's so sad.

Good decoys though.

I remember the decoys that my dad used to keep in the garage in a big burlap bag. None of the fake ducks were as colourful as those.
