A lot of albatross are showing up now that the wind has shifted from the south to north. I think it was tougher for them to fly back here against the wind. We've seen 2 Short-tailed albatrosses so far, the one that sits by the runway, and the male of the pair on Eastern Island. More Black-footed and Laysan albatross are showing up every day.
We had a small Halloween party last week at Capt. Brooks' Tavern. Nothing to crazy, since it was a Wednesday night, and our island population is pretty low right now. A few people dressed up, but I didn't take many pics.
A Black-footed albatross flies by. I just noticed I put up a lot of bird photos this week. Next week I'll try to mix it up a bit more.
