Alright, round two. A few more birds this time. I'll grab that 100-400 tomorrow and get you birders some pictures! For now, deal with these!

Snotty


peregrine falcon


A raven that the falcon was chasing away all day


Never a dull moment with the sea lions




A previous victim of the falcon. They don't like the wings.


A gull taking in the view of the north end


Sometimes people have to get creative with the nest markings


In order to tag the elephant seals the interns run up to them, grab a flipper, and use this think to implant a rubber tag


The most common bones found on the island are not of the native birds, but from chicken legs and pork ribs. They are scattered absolutely everywhere.


So, the white posts are indicating gull nesting sites. The upper two numbers designate the year that the individual arrived on the island.


I thought this was funny... There's only one freezer on the island


Here's a quick pano that I made looking down at the west side of the island

Thanks for posting, I love seeing the Farallones. I go out there whale watching all the time, but never lucky enough to set foot on the island! - Randy
