On nice days we are able to enter the tern colony and identify tern nests. On 5/29 we found our first egg and the number of nests have grown to 63! I'm currently learning how to estimate flock sizes ( which takes some getting use to), but we currently have about 150 terns consistently on the island. The work is exciting but you have to be careful, as the eggs are well camouflaged and easily stepped on if no care is taken.

Oh and here are some of the seals on the neighboring island, East Barge. Sorry he is a little blurry, it's through a scope.
