Getting Cooler

It was cloudy and windy today. It was in the low 70's but it seemed a lot cooler than that. The water gets pretty choppy too. This is what winter is supposed to be like here.

We banded a few more black-footed albatross today and marked a bunch more nests. At least the birds won't dehydrate so much with it cooler.

There wasn't much going on today so I'll just leave you with some more pictures from Eastern island.

The brown noddies are sitting on old seawall pieces.

I remember cutting, pulling, and digging huge anchor lines off those seawall plates along with you and others. That was the day a huge spider and several lizards got on you. Love your blog! Keep it up.

Thanks Steve. I'm more careful when I pick up beach debris nets after that day.
