Albatross Painting Again

This morning we went back to Eastern Island to paint some more of the decoys. The other short-tailed albatross was not there right now, but again, we are hoping for more next year. We also brought the two guys over there who are here to study moths.
This afternoon, Greg and I did some spraying and the volunteers checked the albatross plots. So it was a usual Wednesday afternoon.

The red-footed booby chicks are hatching now. It will take a while to get the red feet.

The mullets swim around the piers on the surface looking for food. This fish looks like it's about 3 pounds or so.
