Rainy Wednesday

We got rained on again today as we were marking the black-footed albatross nests in the plots. Our plots are 20 x 20 meters and so far we have an average of about 35 nests per plot (there will be more). We do these plots to check reproductive success for the birds. We have some other plots that check for overall survival rates.
Most of the verbesina is dying off now for the winter season, so we have more time to do the other things. There's plenty of it still flowering and sprouting, but it doesn't grow so quickly this time of year.

You can never have too much of Turtle Beach.
