More Petrels

Tonight I'm going out to catch more petrels. I've been doing that alot more now that the volunteers are gone. At least there are 4 more coming tomorrow, so I'll be able to get some more evenings off.
The chicks are getting big and starting to get a few feet out of their nests. There are very few eggs left (except the rotten ones that didn't hatch and will explode when it's hot this summer).

Here is a black-footed albatross chick. They are usually more white than the Laysan chicks, which is funny since it's opposite when they are adults.

Here's a Laysan chick for comparison.
