Mid-40s, mostly cloudy, light NW wind
Still stuck at 59, although we found out about a Sandhill Crane that was seen here three days ago. Maybe we will find it tomorrow.
We did not see the siskin today (not since yesterday morning), although the feeder was still active.
At Landing Lights Beach, a large number of Jellyfish had washed up on shore. I saw several on the Clam Lagoon Peninsula the other day and remarked to Barb that I had not seen any out there before. They did not have any tentacles, so they were not the lethal Portuguese Man-o-war types–but I didn’t touch them anyway.
A few more flowers are starting to bloom.
And, of course, the obligatory mug-shot.
There were hundreds of Ancient Murrelets in Sweeper Cove this morning and out in the bay. A few Pacific Loons are still hanging around. We went out to the Loran Station and, unlike our previous two visits this trip, the puffins were abundant and active–feeding and flying back and forth from the sea to their nests. Unfortunately, the cliffsides on which they nest are not visible from the Loran Station viewpoints.
One more day to find number sixty for the trip.
We will be leaving Adak around 6 pm tomorrow and will be arriving home around 5 pm Friday. So the next post (and wrap-up) of this year’s trip will come on Saturday.
