Ilima and Petrels

Yesterday while we were spraying, Greg spotted an ilima plant. That's the one that we thought was extirpated from Midway (I showed a picture a while ago). It was growing next to the cement by the theater. We marked it off so no one accidentally kills it. I also took a clipping to try to get some more to grow in the greenhouse.
Tonight we did more petrel catching. We didn't catch as many as yesterday, but we got a few banded. The pictures are a little dark, but you get the idea.
McKenzie and Matt are untangling a petrel from the mist net.
Here's McKenzie, Mel, Jen, and Janet measuring and banding the birds.
