I thought I had posted a picture of actually landing on Tern island. Apparently I didn't. You can see a part of the pilots helment in case a bird comes through the windsheild.
The sooty terns are coming back by the thousands. There are big clouds of them above the island, and they are getting really loud. You can see why the pilots wear helmets.
A gray-backed tern is sitting on a rock. There's only a few of these around. They look the same as the sooty terns except what's gray on this bird is black on a sooty tern.
MMMM, fish and squid oil! This is a common sight around the island.
The frigatebirds are almost always puffed up now so they add a lot of color to the island.
This is what the kitchen looks like. This was a spaghetti night.
