A new visitor group came in on Thursday. Students from the Nicholas School for the Environment at Duke University are here for a visit. They've been coming here for a few years now and as usual, are posting a daily blog. Here's the link: http://www.nicholas.duke.edu/hawaii/
The students take turns with the entries and they do a great job, so check it out.
Here's a picture of the short-tailed albatross chick. This picture is only a few days old and the chick is already about twice as big as this.
Here's one of the new Laysan albatross chicks. I'll put up a black-footed alb. picture next week.
I took this photo of the spinner dolphins from the harbor wall today.
The Duke group got a tour of Eastern Island today. This monument has 3 plaques that discuss the importance of Eastern Island during WWII, that's where the runway was during the battles.
The Chugach Band played at the All Hands Club last night so there was some dancing going on.
