Update from Sagehen on Seal Island

Posted by: nina-karnovsky | August 8, 2017 | No Comment |

Mid-July update from Clare!

Everything’s still going great here! Almost all of the chicks on the island are hatched, so we’ve been super busy with feeding studies. I think my favorite thing we do out here is tern feeding studies, where we sit and watch 6 nests for three hours and mark down when parents bring in food and what they bring in. I love just getting to observe their behavior, and you get to know the birds in the feeding studies really well. Our tern chicks are fledging right now, so it’s getting pretty crazy in the colony with all these new fliers!
