We banded a few birds yesterday. I am beginning to get into the swing of things. I now seen firsthand the devastation that a fully grown bull Black-footed Albatross can inflict on human skin. It ain't pretty. No lifers yesterday, but I currently have my sights set on a few target lifers. Namely the boobies. Possibly some Wedge-tailed Shearwaters. I've been told that this is entirely possible, but I've yet to see the goods. It's time for work again today, so I've gotta run.
