First Chick

Today Mark was out checking black-foot nests and found the first chick. He also found 2 eggs where the chicks were just poking the first holes trying to get out. They should be popping out everywhere now. I'll have to get out and get some pictures soon.
Today was another chainsaw day. It goes a lot slower when there are nests everywhere. We'll have to wait for the chicks to start wandering around before we can cut a lot of those trees.
We are also getting another group of volunteers tonight. This group is graduate students from Duke University. I'm not sure what they are studying, but I'll find out tonight. They'll be staying for 9 days.

I was out taking pictures by the fuel pier on Sunday.

This is looking toward the end of the fuel pier.
