Midway Albatross Count: Day 10

Posted by: Kim Steutermann Rogers
Destination: Hawaii Island , Kauai , Maui , Oahu
Dec 23, 2008

Finally, sun.  Why is everyone so much more cheerful when the sun is shining?  That includes the birds.  They no longer tuck their heads under their wings like they did when it was so windy and rainy.  Like us, they are soaking up the rays.

Because the skies had cleared and the winds backed way off, we all hopped in the Fish & Wildlife Service’s boat and headed back to Eastern Island, one week to the day after our last visit.

I now know why everyone loves to go to Eastern Island.  Because we only go on good weather days.  I like Eastern, because there are some cool birds over there.  Like these, in order: Great frigatebird, juvenile; Great frigatebird, males; Red-footed booby, juvenile; Brown noddy; Bristle-thighed curlew; Black-footed albatross; Red-footed booby juvenile; and Masked booby.
